You can contact Maida Owens, director of the Louisiana Folklife Program,
in Baton Rouge at (504) 342-8180. No email. Part of her job is to keep up
with such things as folk architecture. She'll have some good ideas where
to send you for most picturesque, most "authentic," or whatever you want.
Also, FYI, in _Cajun Country_ by Ancelet, Edwards and Pitre,
(University Press of Mississippi, 1991) there's a
good, clearly-written, straight-forward-for-the-layperson section on folk
architecture with a bit of history, some photographs, house plans and
layouts, and a map showing house-type distributions in the state.
