18th century by NB-Photo 18th century by NB-Photo
From New Orleans, LA, we took a trip on Highway 18, which runs on the west bank of the Mississippi. This stretch is of great historical significance, since it is dotted with many sugarcane plantations dating back to the 17th or 18th century. This is also known as the River Road.

Homeplace Plantation, designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970, is located on the west bank of the Mississippi River in St. Charles Parish. Constructed between 1787 and 1791, it is one of the finest and least altered examples of a large French Colonial raised cottage left standing.
This place, unfortunately, is privately owned and not open to the public.
