Little Caillou Rose Room

Ronald Pellegrin: After WWII, Aswell Guidry and Dudley Callais, from South Lafourche purchased land on bayouside of Little Caillou from my father, Sivest Pellegrin, to build a dance hall. Around 1950 they sold the Rose Room to our cousin, Royal Pellegrin, from Montegut, Louisiana. He doubled the size of the the business. It had a restaurant, bar, and dance hall. Royal hired my father, Sivest, my mother, Edia, and sister, Gloria. Sivest, known as Sy, was bartender. Royal sold the business to another cousin, David Pellegrin, around 1955. My dad, Sy, opened up a bar and grocery store, across from the Rose Room. The Rose Room became a general merchandise and clothing store under David Pellegrin. The building is still there. Today it is a residence of another Pellegrin.
