  • To my knowledge, this is the only plantation that solely focuses on the life of the enslaved. It is a mix of original buildings, salvaged buildings from other sites, and amazing art and sculptures...

  • Amazing Experience. The only plantation tour focused on the slaves. This tour is a great look into the life of slaves here in Louisiana. The tour is self guided with an audio program you listen along you as you walk through the property. I highly recommend this tour if you want to really learn what it was like to be a slave and learn about their histories.
  • An Enlightening tour of one of the best plantations offered. There was so much history shared that my party and I were in awe. If you go to New Orleans you owe it too yourself and your loved ones to take this tour. If you are of African descent, you definitely need to see this historical place on a tour that is given from the slaves perspective. I highly recommend it and commend those who make this possible and are preserving as well as protecting this priceless property.
