Bayou Preservation is a team of professional conservators and preservationists that specializes in the hands-on restoration of historic and artistic works in southern Louisiana. Our conservators come from throughout the United States, have international preservation experience, and hold Master’s degrees in historic preservation. Restoration experience ranges from repairing metal sculptures at Tulane University, preserving a masonry outbuilding at a plantation in rural Louisiana, and restoring the infamous Marie Laveau Tomb in the historic St. Louis 1 Cemetery. We are a registered, Louisiana small business, woman-owned, and fully insured.

Michelle Stanard Duhon is the owner of Bayou Preservation, and is a trained architectural conservator with over 10 years of experience. She holds a Master of Science degree in Historic Preservation from the University of Texas School of Architecture, and specializes in plaster/render and masonry conservation.
