We are proud to partner with the City of St. Martinville and the St. Martinville Main Street Association to help them find the Duchamp Opera House a new future. This two-story 7,125 sq. ft. building was built in 1830 and is located in downtown St. Martinville. It features original brickwork and grand staircase. The city is offering it for $300,000, which is a little over $42 per sq. ft. It would be ideal for a retail shop, professional office, or even a live/work location. Contact us today to schedule a showing or for more information.

Is the water off in St. Martinville? Its 3"04 AM 11/18/19/....no water by Cajun Chef
I believe we have one of the prettiest downtowns around! However, I have noticed that when you park on Main Street to go to one of the businesses, you have to step in mud to get to them! There should be some way that this can be addressed.
The Opelousas Walgreens is offering Veterans free flu shots! No appointment is needed. Pharmacy hours are Monday through Friday 7am-11pm. Saturday’s and Sunday’s 9am-9pm. Come see us!
Call or text me anytime..3373392401
Anyone know how long it'll be before power is restored in the downtown area?
I want to take time to give a special shout out to Officer Guidry with the St. Martinville Police Department. This outstanding citizen took the time out of his busy shift to help fill sandbags for the elderly people of St. Martinville. If you see him today, or any other day for that matter, thank this man for his generosity. Side note .... it is an election year St. Martin parish. During the three hours that I spent helping fill sandbags, not one time did I see any elective official or candidate lift a finger to help their citizens. In fact, I saw one candidate inside a grocery store. After making the comment of officials neglecting the elderly and non-able bodied persons of not only the city, but the entire parish, this candidate stayed silent and walked out of the store, in which I'm sure he went back to his home to relax in the AC. Pay attention people to the personnel helping the parish, and those that are completely ignoring humanity and wanting to be elected. Yall stay safe during this time of bad weather.
Can someone advise me regarding Trash Pick Up? Which can do we use this week? (Pelican or Waste Management)
This summer marks the 300th anniversary of the arrival of Jonathan Darby to New Orleans. Jonathan helped establish and lead the Cantillon Concession. To celebrate this milestone anniversary of his arrival, we are having a Darby 300th Family Reunion next month in New Iberia, June 21-23. We’re hoping to connect with the thousands of his descendants to share in the experience. If you are one of the many, we'd love to have you be a part of this one-of-a-kind gathering! For more information and to register before the deadline, visit our website. You can also join the conversation on our page (darby300). We’d love you to add your name to our ever-growing family tree!
Is the water off in st Martinville out by Cajun Chef?
I ride my bicycle around town and today I rode around Adam Carlson Park. This time I got off of my bike and walked around the two areas that are listed as Baseball Fields, I can understand why kids or adults don't use these two fields.Firstly, they don't qualify, or should I say, should not qualify as baseball fields because of the deplorable condition of the grounds. The building which is supposed to be a concession stand is leaning at 15 degree angle and is in need of repair, but why bother, it isn't used. I continued on back to the big building where the Zydeco Festivals used to be held. The Rest Rooms there are deplorable. Drainage pipes have been installed on the West and East side of the building, but the dirt work is not finished. The drains into these pipes need to be adjusted to meet grade for proper drainage. Moving on I stopped to check out one of the new Pavilions, There is a stub out pipe for future electricity and one for water. I then rode on to Magnolia Park. The new Pavilions there are the same. The Skate Park is in excellent condition, I don't know who or how many kids us it. The huge building that was to be a roller rink building has water on the slab. I didn't notice if lights and electrical receptacles are available. I can't say much about the Rest Rooms near the Bayou or near the Base Ball field, and I must say that is a state of the art baseball field. Water faucets need some water.
