Also known as The Houma Bargain Store, 7887 Main was originally built in 1891 and was occupied by the only department store in Houma for over 50 years. It was a keystone commerce center and Houma’s Main Street. Prior to its renovation, the facility most recently housed the Houma Traffic Court and Administration Services.
The owners’ dedication to the revitalization of the Houma Downtown Center and Main Street were integral to the realization of this project. With their input, and memories of the original building, NANO delivered the first Historic Renovation and Tax Credit project in Houma. Louisiana.

Overlooking both Main Street and Bayou Terrebonne, and in association with Houma’s bayou walk revitalization program, NANO envisioned a double sided Public | Private design solution that encourages the public to enjoy the communities historic architecture, while providing a variety of commercial opportunities on the first floor, with 5 residential units above. The project, in combination with Houma’s dedication to a revitalized city center, has ignited a revitalization of Houma’s Main Street District.
The exterior first floor and all of the back elevation overlooking Bayou Terrebonne were reconfigured with a storefront system approved by the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) to define the commercial component and increase square footage for the inhabitants.
