A must see for the slave cabins alone!

I have toured three of the plantations along the River Road, and found this to be the most interesting of the three. To start off, it isn't as widely visited as the others, which makes for a nice experience. The twin staircases in front of the house are impressive and while the house is not huge, it is lovely inside.... More

So glad we chose Evergreen. Guide gave very detailed history of the area. We did not feel a tour of another plantation was necessary. We left thinking like we had received a taste of reality, as it was then.

I took the 11:30 tour on April 15th. The grounds are great but my tour guide was 'meh. I attended the tour with my friend who is visually impaired. As we entered the kitchen, the tour guide stated that the kitchen had artifacts that are of a German arts nature. My friend asked for a description and the tour guide's... More

We had an absolutely wonderful experience at Evergreen, and if you only have time for one or two plantation visits, make sure this is one of them! I'm a huge history buff and have visited many historic homes and plantations over the years, and this stood out as one of the very best I've ever seen. First, Evergreen is not... More

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.

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
