Experience St. Joseph Plantation, one of the few fully intact sugar cane plantations left in the River Parishes....
We loved this tour. I have three boys (ages 12, 11, & 6) who really got a lot out of this (the older ones more than the younger one) and enjoyed learning about the history. The house was gorgeous and the tour guide was so good and full of knowledge. It really was one of the highlights of our trip.
Very good tour by Jessie
We really enjoyed our tour of St Joseph Plantation... We were amazed at how much work had been done to restore the plantation. Equally as amazing is the fact that three families, all descendants of plantation owners, have banded together to ensure that their plantations continue to produce sugar cane crops in the families’ tradition. Miss Diane was a wonderful and gracious guide, and is certainly not afraid of hard work. And her personal recollections and stories of her family’s history provided a unique perspective to our tour: it wasn’t just history, it was something near and dear to her heart! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and recommend this tour to anyone wishing to not only learn about the history of a plantation, but actually see one in action!

Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?

St. Joseph Plantation is unique in that the same family has owned and operated it since the late 18th century. Most of the staff are descendants and offer first hand accounts and share personal memories of this majestic place.

The house is furnished with the actual family’s belongings and no room is off limits to the public. The grounds offer several out buildings to be self toured.

The family’s Catholic faith is evident throughout the home and stories of the family.

They have a wonderful little gift shop with locally made treats, keepsakes, and books. There are several picnic tables in the rear of the home for picnic lunches.

Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?

I definitely would recommend this activity with children or without. There is something for everyone.
