Our visit to Destrehan Plantation was one part of a Greyline's Plantation and swamp. It was built in 1787 an has considerable history. It proved to be an ideal window into: the Creole system of slave management - a sharp reminder of the ills of slavery when you see first hand the dollar value that was place given to each person. The French Colonial architecture was interesting and the period costumed interpreters provided informative commentary on the Destrehen family, historical events and the unique architectural features of the plantation. A highly enjoyable and informative visit.
