Where our animals call home.
Wakefield was built in the Greek Revival style during 1834-36 by Scotsman Lewis Stirling. The stately ionic columns, 12-foot ceilings and 22x22 rooms provide a grand setting for a home that is lived in, not merely exhibited. Originally built as 2 1/2 stories, the second story was removed in 1877 to partition the estate. An entry drive between rows of live oak trees and azaleas, leads to the front of the home, flanked by numerous camellias, azaleas and bulb fields of spider lilies, narcissus, daffodils, and jonquils. Located behind the home is the original barn, built around 1800 out of rough-hewn 4x12 cypress boards. We believe Wakefield is a perfect place for a Louisiana longhorn breeding program. We think the longhorns in Louisiana believe the same.
