Description
Whitney Plantation Tour Photos (21)

Get a personal in-depth look into the lives of slaves and slave owners that once inhabited the Whitney Plantation in Antebellum, Louisiana with this plantation tour. The plantation museum is the only one of its kind throughout the Louisiana tours and focuses mostly on the lives of the slaves. Start your tour by meeting at the Steamboat Natchez boarding dock, where you will load up in a comfortable motor coach bus to be transported to Whitney Plantation. 

The drive to the plantation is narrated, as you pass by some notable places such as Oak Alley, St. Joseph, Laura, Evergreen, and Felicity Plantations, all of which are testaments to the past of the Mississippi River and its fertile grounds that once grew cotton, indigo, and sugar cane to ship to trading ports.

After arriving at Whitney Plantation, you will depart the bus for a fully immersive guided and narrated tour of the grounds and buildings. The plantation holds at least twelve historic buildings, all of which are toured when visiting and are a one-of-a-kind perspective on the evolution of the working plantation in Louisiana. The main house, which back then was known as The Big House, is a wonderful sight to behold, it is known as one of the earliest Louisana Creole structures and one of the best examples still surviving of Spanish Creole architecture.

Learn about the chequered history of the lives of slave owners and slaves on this massive plantation through restored buildings, museum exhibits, memorial artwork, and hundreds of first-person slave narratives, which all provide an intimate look into the everyday lives of these long-suffering people. 

Be sure to check out this amazing tour on the well-preserved plantation that so greatly documents the lives of slaves and their owners, and book other activities today on your New Orleans vacation reservations!
