The history of the Poche Plantation is truly a story of two families. The family of Judge Felix Pierre Poche , who originally built the home in 1867, and the family of Judge Henry and Adele Himel who lived here for over 70 years. The home hosted families that shared common histories of respected military men and legal scholars, strong women who loved them, and a devotion and respect for the river upon which they built their lives.
