Significance: The Coincoin-Prudhomme House is a rare surviving example of a basic Norman-plan Creole plantation house. Furthermore, it is one of very few extant Louisiana plantation houses from the middle-antebellum era that incorporated the Norman French-style roof truss system used by the French on their government, ecclesiastical, and military buildings in the early eighteenth century. The structure also has been traditionally associated with the Creole community in and around Natchitoches, particularly with Marie Therese Coincoin, and it has been thought of as her dwelling.
