Louisiana Off The Beaten Path: 50 reviews and 41 photos
Locust Grove, with only 27 plots, is all that remains of what was once Locust Grove Plantation, owned by the family of Jefferson Davis' sister, Mrs. Anna E. Davis Smith. In the summer of 1835, the future Confederate president brought Sarah Knox Taylor Davis, his wife of 3 months, to the plantation for a visit. Both contracted malaria, and Mrs. Davis, died at the age of 21. Her grave is situated among those of the other Davis family members.
The cemetary is not much to look at, but it has this historic significancy.
Address: P.O. Box 546, St. Francisville, LA 70775
