View Holidays

Located between New Orleans and the capital, Baton Rouge, Plantation Country is a 54-mile stretch along the Great River Road on the Mississippi River. Southern charm and beautifully preserved houses abound in this region also referred to as the River Parishes. You can see historic plantation houses, stunning oak-lined lawns and hear the stories of the people who occupied them. You can also delve into some of the darkest chapters in America’s history that these plantations hold. As beautiful as Plantation Country is, there’s no denying the region depended on slavery to run these thriving sugarcane plantations, and many of the estates like the Laura and Whitney Plantations have gone to diligent lengths to make sure this history is unearthed.

You can now see Plantation Country estates restored to their antebellum era glory, like the Houmas House Plantation – once the largest producer of sugar cane in the country. Learn from knowledgeable period-dressed tour guides, walk the tranquil grounds, witness the history inside and out, and learn about the complex relationships between the white, black, free, and enslaved peoples who once inhabited this fascinating region.
