Historic Village Walking Tour

Be the first to review!
1 - 2 Hrs.
Get a first-hand experience of what early life looked like on a south Louisiana sugar plantation. While most plantation tours focus on the plantation house, Laurel Valley's village shows how the rest lived. The history of this site spans from the settlement of the bayou region by early Acadians (Cajuns) in the 18th century, the establishment of American sugar plantations like Laurel Valley through the 1820s, antebellum plantation life and slavery, the Civil War and Restoration, and the industrialization of the sugar industry through the early 20th century. You will have a chance to browse through the store and museum (kids love feeding and petting the animals next door) and hear about the local and regional history as you walk through the village area, which is about a half-mile hike. Don't miss out, book your Historic Village Walking Tour today!
