The Sidney “Gabriel” Daigle House, built circa 1870 in Lafayette, Louisiana, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior on June 14, 1984. Orginally built by Jules T. and Marie Revillon, it served as the family home for them and their heirs until 1924 when Sidney Daigle and Norma Schenbleaux Daigle purchased it for $3000.00 from Lucille and Julie Revillon.

Considered the jewel of downtown Lafayette in the early twentieth century, the 4,000 square feet of this French country cottage design provided ample living space for the Daigle family and their relatives, who called it home throughout the 1900s. Over the years, the house was the site of weddings, funerals, and many other family gatherings. It was the birthplace of four of the five children of Sidney and Norma Daigle, the youngest of whom, Earl Daigle, passed away there in 2002.

The “Maison Daigle,” as it came to be known, is rich in lore and mystery – former occupants and their ancestors still tell tales of mysterious events associated with its past, and ghosts are rumored to roam the halls upon occasion.

In May 2004, the Daigle House was purchased by George and Pat Bradley of Lafayette. Shawn Bradley, the sixth of their ten children, was instrumental in the relocation of the house and the restoration project. This comfortable and spacious old home now serves as the new offices of Bradley Abstract, which services the real estate abstracting and title needs for most of South Louisiana.
