The story of Laura Plantation is incredible. We loved the plantation and insight to life in those days. It's wonderful that they have such thorough records and firsthand written accounts from that time. My mom bought the book written by the mistress of the plantation and we are all anxious to read it. The Brer Rabbit stories originated there as well. Our guide was Camille. (I'm almost positive that was her name.) She was excited and full of great information. My only complaint is the way she raced from place to place. I am a young, healthy person and I had to almost run to keep up. My grandmother and another lady who was at least 75 didn't have a chance of keeping up. I'm sure they missed a lot of information because Camille would start talking as soon as she reached the next stop of the tour. There were also A LOT of people on our tour. When we went from room to room they made us all cram in so that the door could close completely behind us. It was sometimes VERY tight. I guess that shows how good the tour is - they are overflowing with visitors. If you are trying to choose a plantation to visit, I would definitely recommend Laura Plantation.
