Built by the Humphrey family in 1899, it has been the home of Sunny-Meade since the late 1980’s. Sunny-Meade was originally structured in Jennings, Louisiana. Mrs. Humphrey named her beautiful home after a voluptuous meadow of yellow flowers that sat across the street. Today Sunny-Meade is owned by Charlie and Barbara Primeaux who moved the home to Scott and with care they completely refurbished Sunny-Meade to its original elegance.
