Location

Destrehan, Louisiana, United States

Established in 1787, Destrehan Plantation is the oldest documented plantation south of the lower Mississippi River Valley. Our costumed historical interpreters will intrigue you with stories of those who lived on the plantation free and enslaved. Guests will view and learn the significance of an original document addressed to Jean-Noel Destrehan and signed by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. After the tour guests can view a folk-life demonstration and self-explore our dependency buildings such as a slave cabin with enslaved registry, an overseer's cabin showcasing our 1811 Slave Revolt and Rost Home Colony Exhibits, an outdoor kitchen, a wash room, a trapper's cabin and our Legacy Room displaying original documents and artifacts from the family members.

I am an artist, designer and photographer. I enjoy history, traveling and visiting art galleries and museums. I'm a huge supporter of the animal kingdom and currently have three pets, Cosmos my cat, Cowboy my dog (rescue Dachshund) and Mogwai my other dog (rescue Yorkie). I love beaches and exploring caves. My favorite music is soft jazz, blues and classic rock. My favorite food is oysters! No TV for me, I prefer research, design and outdoor activities.
