Take a step back into history while visiting Habitation Haydel later known as Whitney Plantation. Within the boundaries of the Whitney Plantation lies the story of the German immigrated Haydel family and the slaves that they held. In 2014, the Whitney Plantation opened its doors to the public for the first time in its 262 year history as the only plantation museum in Louisiana with a focus on slavery. Through museum exhibits, memorial artwork, restored buildings, and hundreds of first-person slave narratives, visitors to Whitney will gain a unique perspective on the lives of Louisiana’s enslaved people.
