Tour Louisiana’s Laura Plantation
Enjoy a narrated journey through scenic cypress swamps with a professional historian. Hear of a land of Creoles, pirates, slaves, and voodoo. View Evergreen, Whitney, Felicite’ Columbia, and St. Joseph as you travel the Old River Road to visit Laura, a Creole plantation whose charm is as rich as her history.
Based on the “Plantation Memoirs” of Laura Lacoul, a young Creole girl who grew up on the plantation, the tour narration centers on the charmed and tragic lives of this sugar plantation’s women, slaves, and children. The tour of the manor house gardens and slave quarters is accompanied by the compelling narration that has earned Laura a “Louisiana’s Top Travel Attraction” designation.
