Seeing all that New Orleans has to offer is more than just walking through the French Quarter. Many visitors to The Crescent City want to experience it all, even if that means a day trip to the country. In the 1800's many New Orleans residents also owned farms where they grew sugar cane and tobacco. The farming industry became one of the most lucrative industries in the South and created some of the wealthiest business owners in America. With this demand for the crop known as liquid gold, also came greed, slave labor, and the construction of elaborate farm houses known as plantations.
Understanding all of New Orleans can't be done without also exploring Plantation Country and getting the full story of plantation life.
