Lovely place to visit when you are in Thibodaux! The have old machinery to see, a nice little store and animals to bet. There are several original slave homes to see and a lot of history to take in.

This is very friendly place for children to learn about the old days and feed the animals. The Arts and Crafts festival is also a great time to be there.

Joseph Tucker, a Virginian, established the planation in the 1830s. The main house, built in 1850, was destroyed... More

My grandson had his 3rd birthday party on the grounds. The train cars, chickens, ducks, and various farm animals was a great experience for him and his friends. They loved feeding the animals with the grain available there for the animals.

They got to see largest intact structures of any plantation in our great state, Louisiana. They had a long drive back home and eye opening event I am told will... More

This is a must see when visiting Thibodaux. These houses were some of the sturdiest houses ever built. They have out lasted hurricanes and sever storms that more recent home could not do. The LV Museum is full of artifacts both in and out and the little hand made crafts for sale are unique.

Great place to picnic, feed farm animals, and even Geocache. It is also a great place to take photographs.

Anyone who is a die hard "Angel Heart" fan would certainly appreciate this sugar plantation that originated in 1850. The film location is where detective Harry Angel (Mickey Rourke) drives out to visit Epiphany (Lisa Bonet) in search of more clues into his detective work under the authority of his client Louis Cyphere (Robert DeNero). His job is to track... More

I only gave this an average rating because it is not worth a trip to visit, but if you are in the area definitely go check it out. The general store is mostly museum and is filled with old equipment and goods. There are a few things for sale, but it's mostly museum-like items. I was expecting food or drinks,... More
