- "I've built– "we've" invested years of work in this camp."
- ―Élise Lafleur, on the smugglers' hideout, 1766.[src]
The smugglers' hideout was a decrepit, overgrown plantation located in the Louisiana Bayou, which served as the residence and headquarters of the smugglers Élise Lafleur and Roussillon during the 18th century.
The amount of land it encompassed was large, signified by the partially destroyed brick walls that bordered the grounds. The hideout primarily consisted of the main mansion and surrounding cabins, with one serving as a dressing chamber, but also included a sizeable, though neglected garden and a small graveyard.
- There were signs of burn damage on both the mansion and the surrounding cabins, suggesting a large-scale fire had at some point taken place.
- Two of Jeanne's diary pages could be found on the hideout's premises; one lay just outside the overgrown garden, while another could be found in one of the cemetery's graves.
