Welcome to the Greater Grand Isle Historical Society!

About Us

Who We Are

We are a group of community members passionate about our history, language, culture, and people in our beloved Grand Isle. We preserve artifacts and collect histories, and we put on a variety of interesting events to share and celebrate that heritage today. We believe our history is vibrant and alive, and we love sharing that with others!

Avec Your Assistance

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.  

It takes all of us to tend the flames of our history and to carry it forward. All of your donations and gifts, the memories you share, the photos and objects you give to the museum, the countless hours of volunteering you do--these are the things that keep our traditions alive!  From all of us, un gros merci!
