Our Mission


The Jeanerette Landmark Society is dedicated to the Preservation of Historic Landmarks, promoting education and appreciation of history and improving the quality of life in the community of Jeanerette, LA.


Our Non-Profit

The Jeanerette Landmark Society was chartered in September 2002 and is a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization. As the landscape of Jeanerette was changing precious landmarks were being lost. A group of community leaders decided to create the society to preserve, restore, and maintain our heritage.


Historic Hewes Home

The Landmark Society, and it's donors, have invested over $450k restoring the Harry B. Hewes home for special event rentals and have a busy rental calendar. Money generated from venue rentals help to maintain and preserve the home for generations to come. Contact us to reserve this historic property for your wedding, corporate event, birthday or special event.
