Travel from the French and Spanish Colonial periods through the antebellum grandeur of the sugar barons, to the ravages of Civil War and the rebirth of reconstruction. Family stories set against the fabric of history will intrigue and entertain every visitor to the site.
Wandering among the authentic buildings on the plantation after the tour of the lovingly restored main house, you can find yourself immersed in the rich history of Louisiana and better understand what it is like to live in another time, when French was the language and the white gold of sugar drove the economy.
