The three stone carvings on the front of the parish courthouse were created by New Orleans artist Angela Gregory in 1939. The famous artist created the carvings in her studio in New Orleans and had them shipped to Opelousas for installation. The sculpture’s theme is: Louisiana receiving products from St. Landry Parish – sugar cane, cotton, corn, dairy products, and a magnolia (above). The smaller reliefs are a hunter in a rice field and an Acadian woman with her spinning wheel and stylized cotton. Gregory’s work can be found in New York, Paris, New Orleans, Houston, San Francisco, and Washington, DC, to name a few.
