Whitney Plantation is the only plantation museum in the region with an exclusive focus on slavery. Visitors are guided through the grounds while learning about the lives of people forced to cultivate sugar and rice on this plantation from 1752-1865. Sixteen original structures, including the Big House and two slave cabins, remain on site. As a site of memory, Whitney Plantation features several memorials dedicated to the enslaved people who were forced to live and work here and throughout Louisiana.
