Destrehan Plantation

Located just 25 miles upriver from New Orleans, Destrehan Plantation is not just the oldest plantation house in the Lower Mississippi Valley, but is an easy, accessible step back in to antebellum times. Built in 1787, the Destrehan Plantation retains its southern charm while keeping its ancient oak trees, its flat marshy lawns, its Old South antiques and a wonderful, quiet stillness. See architectural influences from the Spanish and French, listen to stories from costumed tour guides about the daily life of the people that ran Destrehan, and get a feel for the way things were in this little but remarkably old corner of the US.

Practical Info:

The Destrehan Plantation is open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily except for major holidays. Tickets are $18 adult and $7 children. To get to Destrehan Plantation, take the I-310 off of I-10 West.
