Iota in Acadia

The mural of Tee-Mamou Mardi Gras (located on old Bourgeois General Store, built in 1914), allows you to experience the “Tee Mamou-Iota Mardi Gras Folklife Festival.” Mineral springs made Iota the home of Pointe-aux-Loups, an early health spa. “Pointe aux-Loups,” translated to English is “Wolf Point,” one of the oldest places named in the Acadia Parish area. It was once a well-known summer resort because of the medicinal springs there.
