Historic Grand Cane Association

PO Box 295

Grand Cane, Louisiana 71032-0295


$15.00 per year. Anyone wishing to join can just send a check.

   We're dedicated to preserving and promoting the Grand Cane Historic District and the village culture - and we also keep a historic (1834) B&B open for Grand Cane folks (and total strangers) who come  to spend time with family or just visit.  You can reach us at,  We also have a Facebook page for the B&B, "Cook-Hill House Bed and Breakfast,"

We are certainly willing to try to help folks who are seeking their Grand Cane roots...but we have no intention of charging for it.. we aren't professional genealogists.  I guess if someone wanted a large number of pages copied or something, we'd let them know there was cost involved but, at this point, it is just something that a few of the board members can do in spare time.,  As you can tell...this is a fledgling effort.
