There are countless plantations in Louisiana and it's neighboring states, but I am sure this one is among the best.
The property was entered through a small building next to the parking lot. Inside the building was a lovely gift shop with countless local specialities and crafts. It wasn't your average museum gift shop and that's what I liked about it. From there the guided tours started.
Our tour guide was Beverly, she was incredibly friendly and well-informed. First we visited the backyard of the property where the accomodation for the enslaved people were located. In addition to the information given to us by Beverly there were additional information displayed throughout the property. Everything was kept in good shape.
There was also another employee showing us how the houses were build and how the materials for the walls were mixed together.
After that we visited the main building which was also kept in very good shape. First we were led to a room in the basement where we were showed a brief documentary about the history of the plantation followed by a tour through the whole house.
We learned lots of new things during this visit and enjoyed it thoroughly because of our amazing tour guide. If there is one plantation I would recommend to visit it is this one!
Thank you to the whole team to keep the property in such a good shape and to maintain its authenticity.More
