Tour Highlights

Plantation ToursTake a guided tour with professional tour guides dressed in authentic period costumes.

Built in 1856, San Francisco Plantation is a galleried house in the old Creole style, commonly referred to as "Steamboat Gothic". Influenced by Louise's Bavarian heritage, the plantation boasts a vivid palette of color, with hand-painted ceilings, faux marbling and period antiques. The house, restored once in 1970, and again in 2014, at a cost of millions, has been returned to its 19th Century glory.
