Interesting and pretty

I went here several times on field trips with the kids. It's a pretty, classic Southern plantation with an interesting history. Their special events are nice.

We stopped in during the middle of the day about 3:15, had missed the 3:00 tour, but the young lady there said she could give us a tour starting at 3:30. We were the only ones there so it turned out to be a one on one private tour of sorts. The young lady was very knowledgeable and thorough, giving... More

We stopped in Alexandria on our way from Florida to Texas. Instead of another rest stop, I had planned to visit this plantation home to see something interesting while stretching our legs. Unfortunately, we were too late for the 3pm tour, and in fact, NO one else was even visiting. I thought I'd ask the guide if we could just... More

Circa 1796, this historical site is the real deal. Tour very interesting for all ages. Do try to see any demonstrations available. Great gift shop.

Alexandria is the cross roads of two cultures. In the North there is the white anglo Saxon protestant predominant culture and just south is the Cajun Catholic culture. The city was burned by the Yankees but this house was spared. The guides are first rate and access is easy.

Great history. Tour is worth seeing with house and grounds. Worth seeing. Landscaping very pretty. A great place to take the family to learn about the history of Alex.

When I arrived at Alexandria, I asked one of the locals about things to do in the area. I mentioned that it was my goal to one day visit Mississippi to visit a plantation home there. As it turned out, there was a plantation home literally minutes from where I met this gentleman. A few co-workers and I decided to... More

The personalized tour guide was quite nice and she spent a lot of time explaining the history of the home. I would recommend it.

Call ahead for the schedule they have enjoyable and educational activities during the year. My sister-in-law and I thoroughly enjoyed tour due to knowledgeable tour guides who enjoyed their jobs of bringing history alive. The bathrooms for visitors were clean and modern.
