Join Friends of the Shadows - Preserving the Past for the Future
The mission of the Shadows-on-the-Teche and the National Trust for Historic Preservation is to preserve the building, landscape, collections, and historical integrity of the site; to research and interpret through education programs a 19th century southern Louisiana plantation economy and community and their evolution; and to encourage an appreciation of and interest in historic preservation in the local community. 

Whether your passion is history, art, architecture or education, you can make a difference by making a gift to preserve the past for future generations.  We rely on private contributions for the continuation of the preservation efforts, educational programs, and research. When you become a Friend of the Shadows, you join with others, like yourself, who are committed to continuing the work began by Weeks Hall over 50 years ago.  Consider a planned gift, or become a member today.
