Even in these uncertain times, our mission continues.
As the only plantation museum in the region with an exclusive focus on slavery, we are committed to educating the public about the lives of people forced to cultivate sugar and rice on this plantation from 1752-1865. While we are unable to allow visitors on our site, we are continuing our research and outreach initiatives digitally.
During our closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, Whitney Plantation is keeping the entire staff on the payroll. Like many businesses, we face economic uncertainty due to this closure during a normally-busy season.
If you are able, please consider making a donation, or purchasing a Gift Card to visit us later. Your donation directly supports our staff and mission, and it is tax-deductible. Gift Cards can be used personally, or given to friends and family to redeem in the future.
To learn more about our mission, the history of this site, and the educational initiatives we support, we have also included links to digital resources that you can use now.
We hope to see you soon,
– Whitney Plantation
