Byerley House Museum 
Community and Visitors Information Center

Byerely House Museum in Lake Providence, Louisiana in East Carroll Parish on US Highway 65 is the Visitor's Welcome CenterCirca 1900
National Register of Historic Places

Open to the public 9-5 Monday-Friday, friendly volunteers welcome tourists at the Byerley House with free information about local and statewide attractions.

Located on beautiful Lake Providence (across the street), where beautiful bald cypress trees, birds, fish, and ducks welcome visitors,  Historic markers on the banks of the lake document General Grant's efforts to divert the Mississippi River at Grant's Canal.  You can stroll along the cypress-lined pier and enjoy the peacefulness. 

   

Byerley House's original location was about a block from its present location and was set for demolition until the owners donated it to Doorway To Louisiana, Inc.  The house was carefully moved to the more prominent position on the lake and its restoration took three years.  The house was opened to the public in June 1993.
