Owned by the same family since 1877. Still a working sugar plantation. Most guides are family members. Original outbuildings including manor home, slave cabins. Also, detached kitchen, blacksmith and carpenter's shop. Open Monday through Saturday.

It’s hard to choose which plantation to visit. While Oak Alley seems an obvious choice, the others are less known and all seem the same, and prices are also all more or less 20$. In the end, we picked the St Joseph because we found...More
