The Iberville Museum was recently host to family and friends to open the William H. Middleton Collection, a collection of maps presenting Louisiana and Iberville Parish. 

The map collection contains maps dating from the 1500's through the early 1800's. Maps drawn by the French, Spanish, English and early American explorers are represented.

The exhibit was funded by the friends and family of William H. Middleton in his memory.
