Raceland, Louisiana: Peter Pan House

A chaotic-looking work-in-progress since 2004 for artist-recyclers Juliana and Lance Martin. It includes a water slide from a defunct amusement park.

LA-1, Raceland, LA
Best view of the house is from the bayou side of LA-1, either 6.6 miles west of the intersection of LA-182 in Raceland, or 7.7 miles east of the intersection of LA-20 in Thibodaux. Private property; please be respectful.

Peter Pan House

This thing has been around for ages. I've always wondered how it hasn't collapsed into the bayou. Best way to see it is from across the bayou on LA-1. You can view it in passing while driving by.

Peter Pan House.

Peter Pan House

The walls are made of old cypress doors and the windows from old houses in New Orleans. It has a rope bridge running across the water slide, which is the old Sonic Shoot from Water Land USA in Houma. The building on the left with the flag is a huge room with loft like a tree house. There are multiple patios and brick fire pits. The front is canopied with large live bamboo. It looks like a mess but all of it has history and is really cool.
