Take a 5-minute drive across the Mississippi River Bridge to the West Baton Rouge Museum. See how sugar was produced from “cane to grain” and learn about the history of life on a sugar plantation.

The historic site of Plaquemine Lock brings visitors directly to the Mississippi to see how sugar and goods were transported from sugar plantations to the refineries in the northern states.

Visit Nottoway, the largest plantation home in the south and enjoy lunch or dinner at the Mansion Restaurant.
