The term Folk Architecture implies the study of structures built by and for the people who occupied them, or by those of the same cultural standing. These structures used tradition and custom rather than formal schooling as their guidelines. Louisiana Folk Architecture is exemplified in seven buildings at the Rural Life Museum -- a country church, pioneer's cabin with corn crib and potato house, shotgun house, Acadian house and dogtrot house -- whose divergent construction traits illustrate the various cultures of Louisiana settlers.
