Construction crews worked from the inside out Tuesday as they dismantled portions of a historic plantation house that once served as home to frontiersmen and Alamo hero Jim Bowie.
The Acadia Plantation house, cobbled together in 1875 from antebellum homes on an La. 1 site, underwent the first phases of a tear-down by local builders. The same builders turned an adjacent plot of land, where sugar cane was once produced, into a subdivision several years ago.
Attempts to confirm that the house is being dismantled to make way for a second phase of that project were unsuccessful Tuesday.
