Whitney's Slave Cabins
St Joseph Plantation
Follow us off the beaten path, away from tourist crowds, on this unique pilgrimage, for a trip back to the Antebellum South as you drive upriver along the Mississippi River to visit 2 unique Louisiana Plantations.
Scenic crossing of the Mississippi River on a high suspended bridge, then a short ride upriver brings you to WHITNEY PLANTATION: Museum of Slavery. Recently open to the public, it exposes the harsh realities and raw historical facts of this dark side of American history. Guided tour of the restored buildings and museum exhibits. The slave narratives and memorial artwork recreate the world of a pre-Civil War sugar plantation and the lives of the slaves who toiled there.
A short ride through sugar cane fields brings you to St JOSEPH PLANTATION, a Creole style family-owned working sugar cane plantation since 1877. Your tour guide will give you a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the many interesting people who have called this plantation 'home'. Many tours are guided by family members themselves, it is a relaxed, intimate visit to tour an ancestral home, grounds and dependencies (including original slave cabins). It is the location where the movie: "12 Years a Slave" was filmed.
