The tour is 1.5 hours looping, providing a ton of historical information. This tour allowed pictures (not all of them do). The Whitney plantation tour goes into detail about the plight of the slaves, both those that came across during the international slave trade, as...More

I recently visited this place, and was so moved by it. Despite the fact that it was a VERY hot day, we made it through, and I'm glad that I did. I had always known that slavery in the Old South wasn't what was depicted...More
