In these uncertain times, our mission continues.

Whitney Plantation’s mission is to educate the public about the history of slavery and its legacies. Now more than ever, our mission of education is critical. Whitney Plantation helps foster understanding about our nation’s troubling history.

Whitney Plantation has been sustained tremendous damages due to Hurricane Ida. The museum remains closed indefinitely while staff works to assess damage and make critical repairs.

Please consider making a donation to help support our mission. Donations help us to fund research initiatives, develop interpretive and educational materials, maintain our grounds and 22 historical structures, and pay our staff.

While we work to recover from Hurricane Ida, donations will be used to fund restoration and repair of our historical structures and to pay staff during our closure.

We hope to see you soon,

– Whitney Plantation
