Northwest of the magnificent New Orleans metropolitan area, mostly located along the fertile banks of the expansive Mississippi River, lie a number of lovingly restored historic mansions and plantation grounds. During our Louisiana trip this year, Mary and I were able to wade in the culture, history, and captivating photoremedy of this breathtaking region.
Our travels took us to three spectacular holdings. Our first stop was Laura Plantation – a restored historic Creole plantation near Vacherie, Louisiana. The photo opportunities–and guided tour–at Laura featured stories associated with the following.
The Plantation House
The End of Slavery
Laura’s Appointments, Trinkets, and Amenities
The Plantation Grounds and Other Structures
Our next post in this series will feature the famous antebellum mansion and historic grounds of Oak Alley Plantation.
