Whitney Plantation has sustained significant damage from Hurricane Ida. St. John the Baptist Parish and most parts of Southeast Louisiana do not have power.
The museum will be closed indefinitely while staff works to assess damage and make necessary repairs.
Whitney Plantation will continue to pay the entire staff during this closure. If you are able, please consider donating to the museum. Donations help the museum pay staff and help to offset the cost of repairs and ongoing preservation work.
Donations may be made online at www.whitneyplantation.org/donate. Whitney Plantation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your contributions are tax-deductible.
We thank you all for your support of our museum and hope we will be able to reopen soon.
