Louisiana Plantations

St. Francisville

An Old Plantation

Unfortunatley we didn’t get to stay in this lovely place. But we did enjoy The Cottage Plantation down the road from it. We found a plantation with the perfect place to sit back and enjoy life, and maybe write a few lines.  St. Francisville has several of these old plantations built in the 1800’s. Azaleas were in bloom during April, 2008, and color was everywhere. Try it. Take your laptop and sit on the back porch of a spread with a good view of Spanish moss hanging from the oak trees.

Hi. My husband born in tensas parish is where the somerset plantation area is now. Back in the late 30s and 40s my husbands family lived in the house. We cannot find any photos of the house built after the first was burned down in the civil war. My 85 and 90 year old sister laws would love a photo. Thank u.
