Plantation near New Orleans - Louisianna

Plantation near New Orleans shows slave quarters, grounds and tree-lined entrance. Immacutely kept up but with each step I realized that this was not the place that I agreed with. Inside the home, with it`s immaculate portrayal of wealth during those times, it also reminded me on how it was obtained. Very much a double edged sword, as one one hand I loved the architecture but on the other could not escape the question of why did this happen?

The Story behind the pictures
Old Plantations seem to call you in. Is it that voice from the past, or the grandeur of the buildings grounds, or the expansive wide open porches or the tree lined entrance roads, or even the movies that we grew up with. Whatever, they have the ability to entice one for viewing, and remind us of the past and that is needed to change the future.

John`s Comments
This was definitely worth the stop for me. The grounds felt historic and the trees have stood the test of time. For many of us that have watched movies of the deep south, it will help to see how others actually did live during those times. This visit had something that all should see, it is part of our history, and it should be remembered by all.

John`s Recollections
Today these memories seem to be part of life, and I am so glad that we did experience the visit. The grounds were quite extensive but the visits to many of the buildings stand out as an example of that time.
