Judge Felix Pierre Poche Plantation - Mural
River Road
Convent, Louisiana
circa 1870
Builder/Architect Judge Felix Poche

This is a Victorian Renaissance Revival cottage built in 1866 by Felix Pierre Poche. It is a Victorian Renaissance Revival cottage with an unusual front dormer. Felix Poche was a local leader and in his time he was a Democratic Party leader. He was also a founding member of the American Bar Association. His Civil War memoirs have been published. Also on the property is an exterior office and a barrel-slat cistern. This home is open for tours.

The Judge Poche Plantation House was moved 300 feet to its present location in 1929 in order to provide for an enlarged levee for the Mississippi River at Convent. The story and a half, raised cypress house has 9 foot galleries on three sides and a rear kitchen wing which may be older than the house itself. The central hall has a rear stair set in a side alcove and flanking parlors, one of which has a semi-hexagonal bay. The upper half story is set under a broad gables roof and has a central hall which extends into huge front and rear dormers. Gallery access is provided by numerous floor length sliphead windows and French doors. The three main facades are treated with shiplap
siding. The front gallery is handsomely treated with a system consisting of paired and single chamfered posts and round and elliptical arches. The two front rooms have marble mantels with large round arches and scroll keystones. The two rear mantels are simpler. One has an aedicule motif, and the other is similar in style to the front mantels, but is made of cast iron. Floorboards, louvered shutters, and cast iron vents are original. The front central dormer is treated with double
round arches and oeil-de-boeuf motifs. Its roof and the two flanking dormers date from the 1920's.

These are the only replacements in the house. Adjacent to the house is a small frame law office that was used by Judge Poche and a
cistern.
