                                        In observance of Mardi Gras,    
            The historic grounds & exhibits will be closed on Tuesday, February 25, 2020.  
                            We will resume normal business hours on Wednesday. 
                                     Have a happy and safe Mardi Gras. 


Fall is the Grinding Season here in South Louisiana! What a magical time it is for the farmers and their families; they finally get to reap the rewards of a year of hard work. Our staff witnessed a local farmer cutting down the field next to our historic property, and we thought we would capture some of it on video, and share it with you.
