Laura Plantation

Laura Plantation, Front Door

Laurel Plantation is less than hour upriver from New Orleans on the West Bank of the Mississippi River. A West Indies style Plantation adds plenty of color to the landscape.  These were all working plantations that were self contained sugar plantations producing everything on site.

Guillaume Duparc acquired the property in 1805 and built the home in the next 11 months.  Once finished it was 24,000 st. ft. of living and basement. It was a U shaped structure with a 2500 sq. detached kitchen in the rear. The wings and kitchen no longer exist but you can still see the foundations today….
