SUNRISE MANSION (SRM) ART GALLERY AND MUSEUM was created in the tradition of Melrose Plantation, by artist Indea Vaher , a Louisiana Cane River Creole descendant. Vaher was always intrigued with Marie Therese Coincoin a former slave who became a wealthy business woman and established Melrose Plantation in the late 18th century. The rl grounds of Melrose contain what may well be the oldest buildings of African design built by Blacks for the use of Blacks in the country. The plantation later became a colony for artists and writers. Many would live in restored buildings from the plantations’ colonial past including Clementine Hunter Louisiana’s most famous folk artist.
