Beautifully restored plantation home and grounds with very knowledgeable tour guides. Tour takes appx. 1 hour and they do charge admission. Grounds has building relocated here from other, now destroyed plantations, which gives a great insight into 18th and 19th century life.

Kent provides a look at a different type of Louisiana plantation. Built on the banks of Bayou Rapides and close to the Red River, the area was subject to flooding and led to the raised construction of the living quarters. The house provides a glimpse of life in the mid 1800's of a large cotton plantation. Rebuilt slave quarters also... More

I actually learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice way to spend a few hours. The tour took about 1 hour. The inside of the house is airconditioned which is very nice,... More

The two young girls that give the tours are very knowledgeable and have passion. We worth the $10 and the 1.5 hours.

The cost is 10, well worth the 1.5 hour tour by experienced guides dressed in period dress. The house is a treasure because it is not a grand house it is typical of a smaller plantation of the time. Saved by concerned citizens and moved brick by brick to this location which is still on the original plantation. You park... More

A step back in time! This is an old plantation house and grounds that has the feeling and attractions that make you truly experience what it was like back in the day. The staff is very knowledgeable and give excellent tours of the whole site and history. On special days, they have a blacksmith on site, they make sugar cane... More

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.
