Sixth Precinct Jail

In 1836, Benjamin Buisson, surveyor and engineer for Jefferson Parish, designed a new jail. The Jefferson Parish Police Jury of the City of Lafayette selected James Gallier Sr., architect, in May of 1843 to design a new courthouse. The new building incorporated the old Buisson prison. The building stands today, greatly altered, and houses a city garage.
