Saves: 14
Check-ins: 0
The Whitney Plantation was originally known as "Habitation Haydel." The Haydel family were German immigrants that held slaves and all their lives were intertwined. In 2014, the plantation, for the first time in 262 years, opened its doors to the public as the only plantation museum in Louisiana to focus on slavery. Exhibits, memorial artwork, restored buildings, and hundreds of first-person slave narratives will aid visitors in learning about Whitney and gaining a unique perspective on Louisiana's enslaved people's lives. The Museum is open 9:30am to 4:30 p.m. every day except Tuesday and tours are given every hour between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
