“one of the most interesting in the entire South”

Within the boundaries of the “Habitation Haydel”, as the Whitney Plantation was originally known, the story of the Haydel family of German immigrants and the slaves that they held were intertwined.   In 2014, the Whitney Plantation opened its doors to the public for the first time in its 262 year history as the only plantation museum in Louisiana with a focus on slavery.   Through museum exhibits, memorial artwork and restored buildings and hundreds of first-person slave narratives, visitors to Whitney will gain a unique perspective on the lives of Louisiana's enslaved people. Guided tours are offered M, W, Th, F, Sa, Sun at 10:00am, 11:00am, 12noon, 1:00pm, 2:00pm and 3:00pm. Closed Tuesdays. Adult tickets $22, discounted rate of $15 for students (with id), seniors (over 65), groups, military and residents of St. John the Baptist and St. James Parishes. Free for children under 12.
