The tour of the plantation was outstanding, the guides very knowledgeable. The staff even went out of their way to suggest how best we could use our time there, to maximize our visit and see and listen to as many things. Also it is close...More
The historical society has really done a fantastic job restoring the plantation and keeping this important history alive. Very neat that they have left several viewing windows to the walls and "attic" open to see the construction techniques and tenon & mortise techniques along with...More

Well presented tour, as part of Gray Lines tour out of the French Quarter. Historical and informative, the exceptional guide Laurence brought the plantation and its occupants to life. Anecdotes about both owners and slaves, and with potential skullduggery, illness and slave revolts, there’s something...More

This property was small refinery owned by Standard Oil (Indiana)/Amoco. The mansion was the admin building for the site. When Amoco closed down the refinery (in the 70's as I recall), they created a trust and turned over the site as a non-profit to manage it.
