     The Houmas House Plantation is a must see for all people visiting South Louisiana.  It takes a lot to impress me. It blew me away from the House, to the guide, to the gardens and the cafe. it was well worth the price and the time. Its on River Road not far from Highway 44 near Sorrento.

     The home was completed in 1828 and at one time grew to over 300,000 acres. It was a sugar plantation. Kevein Kelly bought the plantation and in 2003 and it now sparkles along the Mississippi River.

     Lots of movies were shot on location. From Bette Davis to Cicely Tyson, Chevy Chase, James Franciscus, Susan Lucci, and others, Houmas House has complimented the work of stars. The most famous was “Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte”.
