Whitney Plantation opened it's doors to visitors for the first time ever in 2014, and we are now offering tours to this historic place in combination with St. Joseph Plantation. Whitney is the first plantation/museum of its kind. Situated along the well-traveled River Road, Whitney Plantation is focused on telling the true story of slavery, an often taboo subject, especially here in the South.  You can certainly expect an educational experience at this plantation/museum. You will learn about the history of the slave trade (a global development), what slavery was like in Louisiana, and even hear first-hand accounts from slaves themselves. Here are some of the sites you will see on tour at Whitney Plantation…(photos courtesy of our excellent guide, Katha!)
