Laura Plantation

Steeped in history far richer than the former plantation owners could have dreamed of owning, the Laura Plantation lies just beyond the reaches of the Greater New Orleans area. Originally built in 1804 by a French naval veteran of the American Revolution by the name of Guillaume Duparc, the plantation was erected on the site of an old Colapissa Indian village. A Creole-owned sugar plantation, the Laura Plantation differed from most plantations in its Code Noir ethics, its somewhat removed societal circumstances, and its beautiful sprawling sugar plantation landscape. Touring this iconographic plantation, you’ll learn the difference between Creoles and Cajuns, hear chilling ghost stories, and see how a bygone way of life now heralds itself as one of the top Louisiana cultural attractions.

Practical Info:

From New Orleans, the Laura Plantation is off of Exit 194 on I-10 West. Go 4 miles south on HWY 641 to the BIG Mississippi River bridge. Cross the bridge & immediately take the FIRST ramp exit on your right. At the levee, turn LEFT and drive 4 miles to Laura Plantation. The first tour of the day begins at 10:00 am, the final at 4:00 pm. Adult tickets are $18.
