TESTIMONIALS

Laissez les bon temps rouler.

"Let the good times roll."

 

Circa is a premier event facility located in New Roads, Louisiana, on beautiful False River. Originally built in 1903 as a fire station, the building has been completely restored and renovated and provides 3,500 sft of entertaining enjoyment. 

As an historical monument or building, Circa is listed on the National Registry of Historical Monuments, with its life spanning back 115 years, as a multipurpose utility building for the small burgeoning community of New Roads, sited on the banks of lovely False River.

Circa’s original structure was a power plant first built in 1903.  Since then two additions have been made to the building, one in 1939 and one in 1959. After serving as a power plant the building became the town's fire station, then City Hall and later a police department in the 80's and 90's. This property has long been a cornerstone of the community and a focal point for those travelers entering New Roads. Its history is deep and abounding with New Roads life, as it used to be. It is most probably the third most significant historical structure in downtown historic New Roads, apart from St. Mary's Catholic Church across the street from Circa and the Pointe Coupee Parish Courthouse farther down Main Street.

Unfortunately in 2007 the building burnt causing major damages. Only the shell of the original building remained. When the Morel family acquired the building, the debris throughout was 6 - 8’ high as a result of the fallen burnt roof. It took a five year venture of tremendous endeavor to restore the building to its present state today. The debris was cleared and a longterm plan formulated for restoration of the building. The original character, warmth and ambiance of the building has been retained and a visit renews and freshens the soul where one cannot help but sense the presence of those souls whose lives once centered around this 115 year old magnificent structure.
