During this 45-minute walking tour, you find yourself immersed in the rich history of Louisiana during the era when French was the main language and the white gold of sugar drove the economy. Family stories of those free and enslaved set against the fabric of history are sure to intrigue you as you visit the site.

Activity Highlights

Destrehan Plantation was the site where one of the three trials took place following the 1811 Slave Revolt, one of the largest slave revolts in U.S. History, led by Charles Deslondes. During the Civil War, the Union Army seized the plantation and established the Rost Home Colony, where newly freed slaves learned trades enabling them to transition into a life of freedom.
