On Friday, we visited the Laura Planation outside of New Orleans. A sugar cane plantation on the banks of the Mississippi river. We took the 1-1/2 hour guided tour of the manor house, slave quarters, sugar fields and gardens.
We discovered four generations of Creole history at the Laura Plantation of this well-preserved estate. Located just an hour from New Orleans on the Great River Road, Laura Plantation was founded in 1804 and provides a vivid window into Louisiana’s Creole past.
