San Francisco Plantation Antebellum House

San Francisco Plantation House, the most opulent plantation house in North America, is located on the east bank of the Mississippi River, less than 40 minutes from New Orleans, Louisiana. It is a galleried house of the Creole open suite style, nestled under centuries old Live Oaks and contains one of the finest antique collections in the country. This Louisiana Plantation is a National Historic Landmark and is open daily for plantation tours.

We had an absolutely amazing time with our tour guide Anne!! She was so informative and really knew her information about the plantation. We felt like we were taken back in time to the 1700s and given a tour by a housemaid. I would highly suggest stopping by to see the history and learn about the timeline of events. We came as a group and had a great time. Thank you Anne and great job!

This is easily the most beautiful plantation I’ve ever seen, and I have toured dozens and have photographed more than 100. The unique design, architecture and history makes this a must-visit. It’s not far from the River Road plantations so you can see several others on the same day. If you only have time for one, see this one!

Ruby did a wonderful job providing great information and followed up with answers to some of my more obscure questions about its history. A school house and a slave dwelling are open as part of the tour and they tell some of the story of life from the perspective of the enslaved. A tour lasts about an hour and you might want to spend another hour walking the grounds. I love this place!
