The Lambert House is an early nineteenth century three-room French Creole house. Its hand hewn and pegged frame features bousillage infill. In September 2001 the small house was moved about a quarter of a mile on Louisiana Highway 44 (Mississippi River Road) – both locations on the outskirts of the small community of Convent. Today the candidate is being pristinely restored for use as a guesthouse. Because of the condition of the house, various items had to be replicated. However, virtually all of its French Creole character-defining features are original.
