Roy House

To gain more visibility and accessibility for the Center's activities, we are moving into new quarters:  the J. Arthur Roy House. 

Built at the turn of the 20th century by J. Arthur Roy, a prominent Lafayette landowner, businessman, and an early supporter of the University, the Roy House is the only UL Lafayette property listed on the National Register of Historic Places. An architectural treasure, it is prominently located at the corner of Johnston Street and University Avenue.

The Roy House needs substantial renovations to turn it into a welcoming home for the Center, including interior updates, a heating and cooling system, structural and plumbing repairs, and a new coat of paint.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Foundation in support of the Roy House renovations. Donations may be directed to:

Dr. Michael S. Martin, Director
Center for Louisiana Studies
P. O. Box 40831
Lafayette, LA 70504
 

Checks should be made payable to the UL Lafayette Foundation, with "Roy House" noted in the memo line.
