Plantation Country’s Historic Structures

Southern Louisiana Antebellum Attractions


Oak Alley Plantation

Oak Alley Plantation

Many of the Bayou State historic sites take the form of gorgeous plantations homes, which have decorated the Louisiana landscape for centuries.

And although plantations are found throughout the southeast, a dense gathering of these antebellum antiques are found in southern Louisiana – in an region aptly known as Plantation Country.

A small town just outside of Baton Rouge – home of the Louisiana State Capitol BuildingSt. Francisville was founded in 1809 and plays host to many plantation homes available for tours.

Both a U.S. National Historic Landmark and on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site was built in 1835, and offers tours daily from 9 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Also in St. Francisville and listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the Myrtles Plantation was constructed in 1796, and is said to be one of the most haunted homes in the country.

Historic tours are given daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the recommended Mystery Tours are held Friday and Saturday evenings at The Myrtles.

Another famous plantation town in southern Louisiana is Vacherie – just 20 minutes west of LaPlace, and an hour west of New Orleans. Vacherie is home to the stunning Oak Alley Plantation – built in 1837 and approached by traveling down a scenic tunnel of oak tress.

This 25-acre U.S. National Historic Landmark features self-guided and staff-led Big House tours. Less than four miles west of Oak Alley along the Mississippi River, the Laura Plantation was built in 1820, and offers 70-minute guided tours of this historic plantation.
