Although Laura Plantation is not the flashiest in the area, it sure is the best documented, with 5,000 pages of documents discovered in the Archives Nationales in Paris, Laura's memoirs, and folk tales about the slaves. There are also hundreds of artifacts including photos and paintings of four generations of the Locoul family, as well as original furnishing. If you would like to know about Creole culture or the operation of sugar plantations in the 1800s, Laura Plantation is the place to visit. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about the subject, and lead tours every 20 minutes. The tour lasts about one hour. - Hoiyin Ip
