“Where Louisiana is a World apart!”
On our award-winning guided tour, professional interpreters, within 70 minutes, will expose you to compelling, real-life accounts of generations of owners, women, slaves and children who called this typical Creole sugarcane farm their home. The guided tour is based upon 5,000 pages of documents related to this plantation discovered in the Archives Nationales in Paris, with the major stories coming from Laura Locoul Gore's own Memories of the Old Plantation Home.
Beautiful place with a horrific (but sadly run-of-the-mill for this part of the world) history. Guided tour did a good job of giving a sense of what life was like here based on Laura's memoirs.
Fantastic historical tour of a beautiful plantation house and grounds. The tour guide was very impassioned and knowledgable. You left knowing the family history and how it affected the New Orleans area. You gained a personal understanding of the slave life as well as the plantation family ways. The house is beautiful and the grounds are expansive.
