The Evangeline Hotel was a center of business and social activity in Lafayette early in this century. It was changed into a Louisiana State Office Building and is now the Evangeline Apartments which serves as a home for qualified elderly retirees. Amenities include controlled access entry, planned social activities, laundry facilities, 24-Hour maintenance, and an emergency nurse call system. The exceptional location is surrounded by shops, restaurants, banks, a library, Lafayette's Senior Center, and the local Post Office. The onsite retail includes a coffee shope (Art's Cafe) and a Cuban restaurant (Guamas Restaurant).
