Significance: The Prudhomme-Rouquier House, built in the early 19th century and located in the heart of the National Historic Landmark District of Natchitoches, Louisiana, is one of the few 2-story bousillage-entre-poteaux structures in the United States and of those is said to be the largest. It was a working plantation located "in town" and surrounded by cotton fields as opposed to most plantations in the area located outside the city limits.
