This home, now La Belle Riviere Bed & Breakfast, has had several owners before Carol and Jeff Aucoin purchased it. The modest Cajun home was built by Jeff's grandfather, Lawrence Miller. It was then owned by Ervin Miller, Jeff's uncle and later sold to Jeff and Carol Aucoin.
Based on oral history of the settlement of Belle River and excerpts from 'Scattered in the Wind' by Dr. Carl Brasseaux, this area was settled by Acadians that were deported as well as Frenchmen that fled France. These settlers arrived above New Orleans in the area which is present day St. James and St. John parishes in 1764. Another group settled along Bayou Lafourche in 1794. Other immigrants from Europe also inhabited this area. They included folks of German, Spanish and Italian decent.
