"We spent the night here last..." Louisiana Off The Beaten Path Tip by bdbrewer

Louisiana Off The Beaten Path: 50 reviews and 41 photos

 
 

We spent the night here last year prior to going to a New Orleans Saints football game.

This is called Nottoway Plantation. It was spared from destruction by a Yankee soldier who had been a guest in the home prior to the Civil War. He directed Union soldiers to quit firing on it from the River. Not before a cannon ball became lodged in one of the front pillars, however.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
