"Laura Plantation" Vacherie by ExGuyParis

Vacherie Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 63 photos

About a two hour drive from New Orleans, Laura Plantation is at 2247 River Road (Highway 18) in Vacherie. The plantation has an interesting history; for many years, it was owned and managed by women.

i had the pleasure of conducting a business meeting here, with participants from all around the globe. It was a fascinating place.

Laura Plantation is also noted because here, in the 1870s, Alice Fortier created the Br'er Rabbit and Br'er Fox folktales (Compair Lapin et Bouki).

For additional pictures and information, see the New Orleans travelogue by SheDragon.
