This house is named for a local carpenter, Louis Bazin, who in 1898 moved a French Acadian style house to this property, which is located within the 1880 McComb Addition Subdivision. Mr. Bazin added several rooms to the Acadian structure, giving the house its present Eastlake Victorian look. The change in appearance and form was a common style conversion made at a time when the popularity of Victorian architecture became widespread. In the late 1960s, neighborhood residential streets were reconstructed into U. S. Highway 167, named the Evangeline Throughway. Many nearby homes, including this one, fell into disrepair. After several changes in ownership, Daniel Peck and Richard Arlen Keaveney rehabilitated and adapted the house into commercial use as professional office space.
