The Green House Bed and Breakfast was built with lumber from dimantled cypress homes of South Louisiana.

Accents such as doors, windows, knobs and light switches from the cypress homes were also used in construction of the bed and breakfast.

The Village of French Settlement is located in the southwestern portion of Livingston Parish. In its earliest years, French Settlement residents depended heavily on the Amite river not only as their sole means of Transportation to other areas, but as a vital source of fish. Nearby swamplands yielded an abundance of quail, deer, turkey, rabbit, and squirrel. Originally known as Londell, the name of the community evolved into French Settlement after the name of a general store owned by Joseph Salassi. Steamers from New Orleans bound for Salassi's store and cotton warehouse began calling their destination point"French Settlement." Thus, the name became commonly used to describe the entire community. Early settlers traveled the Amite River to Lake maurepas, then crossed the narrow pass into Lake Pontchartrain in order to get to New Orleans. Industry at that time centered primarily on farming, lumbering, and harvesting fish and seafood from the waterways. Today most residents commute to the larger cities for employment. Incorporated on June 13, 1965 French Settlement has a mayor, three aldermen and an elected police chief.
