The Acadian Deportation Cross Monument was created by the Société Nationale de l'Acadie and is located in front of the Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum. There are 10 monuments in all marking the journey of the expelled Acadians. Houma, Louisiana's monument is the first in the United States. Panels in English and French tell the story of the Acadians' journey and the settlement in Terrebonne Parish. A map shows the routes taken by the Acadians following deportation. A cross adorns the top of the monument - a replica of the Grand Pre' deportation cross.
