Magnolia Mound Plantation [LA]
Magnolia Mound Plantation illustrates and interprets the lifestyle of the French Creoles who formed the culture which still influences and pervades life in southern Louisiana. The plantation house was once the center of a 900-acre operation with frontage on the Mississippi River. Spanning the colonial era and early statehood, Magnolia Mound's collection of furnishings and decorative arts include one of the foremost public groups of Louisiana-made objects, in restored and documented settings.
The plantation offers exhibits and educational programs, including school tours and traveling trunks.
