Within the grounds of Globalplex lies a lovely home once associated with the Godchaux-Henderson sugar refinery, the heart of Reserve, Louisiana in a bygone era.
Although it is antebellum in style, the house was built sometime circa 1911. It was used by the Godchaux family and their guests at the time, so the name “Guesthouse” was attached to the home and remains to this day. Between then and now, the house and its grounds have had various owners and have undergone several renovations.
In 1992, the Port of South Louisiana acquired the Godchaux-Henderson sugar refinery, now known as Globalplex Intermodal Terminal, which includes the Guesthouse. Through the interest of the Board of Commissioners and its staff, substantial repairs were made to the house, which suffered a fire in the dining room/kitchen area. To bring back some of its original style and beauty, the Port of South Louisiana reworked its wooden floors, replaced curtains, and rugs, and added period decor, where needed.
Today, the Port of South Louisiana uses the home for business meetings and special events. Above all, they choose to keep the name, which so fits the home that has been the place of hospitality to many through the years.
