There is nothing more lovely on a sunny afternoon than a leisurely tour of an Antebellum plantation. While on my road trip we drove past just such a treasure outside of St. Francisville, Louisiana. It’s called the Butler Greenwood Plantation and Bed & Breakfast. What makes it so unique is that it is still in the hands of the family that built it. That is exceedingly rare, especially with a pre- (Civil) war house. Don’t have time to stay the weekend? Take the tour instead. For $5 each you’ll be guided through the house by a well-informed family member. You’ve never seen heirlooms like they have here. The house in in exceptional condition and the tour is quite interesting. After the tour do what I did, wander the grounds selecting a cottage for your next visit. Mine will be The Old Kitchen.
