ABOUT THE CHARPENTIER HISTORIC DISTRICT
The Historic Charpentier District is one of the finest collections of Victorian architecture in the state with structures dating from the late 1800s. Since there were no architects in evidence here until the early 1900s, the structures reflect the individual characteristics of the carpenters (charpentiers in French) and builders.
