Founded in 1894 by C. C. Duson, who named the town for his wife, Eunice is a prairie town and the cultural center of Cajun country. Here, the Saturday-morning jam sessions at the Savoy Music Center, the Liberty Theater's live radio broadcasts, and the exhibits and crafts demonstrations at the Prairie Acadian Cultural Center will greatly enrich your understanding of Cajun life. That is, if you aren't having too much fun to notice that you're also getting an education.
