Tour #4 Unheard Voices of the German Coast:
Destrehan Plantation Tour
This is a one-of-a-kind plantation tour given by Dianne Honoré descendant of the Destrehan family. You will be taken by bus from New Orleans to Destrehan Plantation, the oldest standing plantation in the lower Mississippi Valley. Built in 1787, Destrehan was a “working” plantation where the Creole system of slavery was implemented by then owner Jean Nöel Destrehan. Learn all about this mansion built by enslaved Charles Paquet who later bought his freedom with money from the sale of land that his father left him. You will meet Afro-Creole enslaved Marguerite, Creole Sugar Baron Jean Nöel, Lydia who died of yellow fever in 1853, Zelia who at 15 married a 46 year old Stephen Henderson, and a host of other inhabitants. Get a detailed view of the architecture and accurate account of life in early Louisiana, the hardships, celebrations, music, slavery, religion and foodways.
This is a well-balanced accurate historical interpretation offered nowhere else on the River Road at any other plantation. It was first presented with rave reviews by local media in 2012.
You can take the bus with us or simply meet at Destrehan Plantation where your guide will greet you.
