What you can expect
Nestled between Baton Rouge and New Orleans is Houmas House and Gardens. Recently seen in the award-winning movie The Green Book, this historic estate boasts 38 acres of the South’s most beautiful gardens, three restaurants, a luxurious Inn and a historic mansion open daily for tours. It’s no surprise the readers of USA Today voted Houmas House the Best Historic Tour in 2017.
The guided mansion tour leads guests through the architectural evolution of the mansion and details how a succession of wealthy sugarcane planters and the Mississippi River grew this manor house to today’s grand estate. Period antiques, artwork and artifacts help the costumed guides tell the story of plantation life. Once sprawling over 300,000 acres, Houmas House has survived wars, floods, abandonment and the test of time.
Spend the day and experience the Antebellum South.
