Rosedown Plantation: The crown jewel of Louisiana's state parks. This is the true "Gone With The Wind" experience,
with over 28 acres of formal gardens.
Oakley House (Audubon State Historic Site) : A fantastic example of the early colonial period. Audubon walked the same paths in the 1820s.
Butler Greenwood: An awe-inspiring Victorian parlor and the tour is given by the 8th generation owner, a renowned author/historian.
Greenwood Plantation: Classic Greek Revival home which was completely rebuilt in the 1970s - an unbelievable story. Numerous movies have been shot here.
Myrtles Plantation: Called the most haunted house in America. The night tour (weekends only) is much more fun than the day tour.
