Privately owned, working sugar plantation. A fasinating history lesson that included the history of the architecture and building of the main house as well as the slave cabins.Tour guide was knowledgable and moved through the main house and the grounds at a slow enough pace to take photos and keep up with her. Tour guide was able to talk about... More

This is my third plantation visit. I am amazed at the rich history of Louisiana. I highly recommend visiting these rich historical landmarks. Evergreen Plantation is known for its original slave quarters. A must see!

Beautiful grounds but you get yelled at if you try to walk around and look at them. Was even told I couldn't walk about 50 yards away to look at orange trees because there wasn't time, but she had time to remain and chat.

This was my first visit to a Plantation and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What I found was a family that has preserved the plantation for the purpose of educating the public about it's history complimented by a very well informed and entertaining tour guide who really knows her history of both the plantation and the region. You'll... More

Very interesting presentation of plantation history. History of ownership and slavery. The guide was very knowledgeable, answered numerous questions. Get there earlier to go through the exposition in the tour reception building. I did not expect to see that two centuries ago slaves lived in better conditions than my highly educated professional parents and I did for the first 15... More

We visited back in June and our guide was a fella who was most informative. However, we ended up getting there 20 mins prior to the tour starting, so we immersed ourselves in the literature located in the reception area which was very informative and recommended (especially if your guide is a bit lacking). This plantation is still a working... More

Had previously visited Oak Alley plantation and thought this one might have a better tour...it did. The guide presented an interesting and historically accurate view of life during both the creole and pre civil war era. The manor house is furnished, although not with pieces original to it. Interestingly, this plantation is privately owned and the owner sometimes lives in... More

This is a great place to sink in the past a little. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for our tour guide. We stood right in front of her and it still felt as if she was whispering. The best place to hear her was inside the house because it echod a little. She also kept... More

The main house and grounds were beautiful. It was great seeing how small the house really was. It was also neat seeing the slave quarters and getting a better idea about their living environment. The guide, however, recited from her memorized script. The. Entire. Time. I would be interested to see the Whitney Plantation or some other plantation where more... More

This was our first visit to a real working (sugarcane, not cotton) Plantation. We all learned many new & unrealized historical facts. There are many building on the National Historical Register. The Grandkids, 8 years (M) & 11 years (F) never lost interest & actually asked questions. Great Tour Guide, She was very knowledgeable.
