Creole Heritage & Folklife Center
The Creole Heritage Folklife Center was founded by Ms. Rebecca D. Henry to promote the rich African-American heritage and culture of her ancestry. The Creole Heritage Folklife Center is located in an old house, deliberately kept rustic so that visitors get a true sense of the period. There is a potbelly stove in the kitchen, a dry sink on the countertop, a hand-braided rug in front of the bedroom fireplace, and shelves with hats and hatboxes of the era. There is also a gift shop of hand made gifts, art, soaps, and dolls
