During plantation tours, which are held from Thursday—Tuesday, guides lead groups through a working sugar-cane plantation, exploring original slave cabins and other historical structures. Relatives of the family that originally operated the plantation guide many of the tours. Children younger than 6 may attend for free.
St. Joseph Plantation
Original slave cabins are just one of the historical sites that groups explore during tours of St. Joseph Plantation, a working sugar-cane plantation built in 1830 that shares a fence line with neighboring Oak Alley Plantation. A schoolhouse, a blacksmith's shop, and many other structures reveal the workings of day-to-day life in the 19th century. Relatives of the family that has owned the property for more than 135 years guide many of the tours, peppering excursions with tidbits of history such as details about the childhood of plantation son and famed architect H.H. Richardson.
