Laura's Plantation is touted as being the "Best History Tour in the United States." Here you'll learn about Louisiana's rich Créole culture and history. The guided tour lasts about 75 minutes and is based on 5,000+ pages of documents from the French National Archives, Civil War Pension Records, and & Laura Locoul's own memories. The entire tour of this historic site consists of the Maison Principale (Big House), the French Jardin, the plantation kitchen garden, the Banana-Land grove, and the original 1840s slave cabins. When the tour is complete, don't forget to stop in and browse through the hand-selected local arts, crafts, and souvenirs in the historic Laura Plantation Store.
