Interesting step back in time

our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. This plantation home is not huge and extravagant like some of the others but i found it interesting that it was primarily run by very strong women for decades. I strongly suggest touring the slave museum, it is very sobering.

We didn't have a lot of time in this part of Louisiana, so there was really only one plantation we could check out. We were not disappointed by our choice! Our tour guide, Cameron, did an excellent job of filling us in on the history of this site. The stories within stories were all very impressive as Cameron kept up a fascinating running commentary and description in an animated manner. Though it was likely his umpteenth time in leading a tour, he made it sound fresh. Walking beneath the giant oaks and wandering through the various buildings combined with the commentary gives the visitor a wonderful sense of life in its heyday. An afternoon well-spent!

Really great tour and place..this really focuses on the family like most plantation tours in Louisiana however unlike most they do have some actually stories, pictures and artifacts from the slaves who lived there. The house and slave quarters are well preserved. They were going to repair mother in law house but a fire happened in the main that took all the money so I would go back when that was done. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgable. As far as overall experience I feel this plantation store is the best ..there are many food items for sale that are quite usually if you aren't from the area. I picked up some pecan oil and cane jelly two things that I didn't even know existed. The book selection is really great as well. Not only modern books but replicas of old books such as a slave cookbook, creole cookbook from back then and children's books from back then like toys and games played back then..this is worth a tour
