On the banks of the Mississippi River, about a thirty minute drive from Baton Rouge, Hammond, Houma, and New Orleans, stands one of the most remarkable examples of mid-Nineteenth Century Steamboat Gothic architecture in Old Louisiana Colonial Style - The San Francisco Plantation House.
Built in 1856 by Edmond Bozonier Marmillion, the house was orginally name St. Frusquin, a name derived from the French slang term, Sans Fruscins, meaning "without a penny in my pocket", presumably a reference to its high cost.
In 1879 Achille D. Bourgere purchased the plantation and gave it the name of San Francisco.
