Thankful to Share Our History With You!
I like to imagine what the former owners of Houmas House from the late 1700's and early 1800's would think of their Sugar Palace now. They would be amazed by how massive the mossy Live Oaks are, how the Mississippi river has turned and changed shape and all the growth that has taken over the thousands of acres of sugarcane fields.
What do you think they would think about running water at the quick turn of a faucet? Or an entire room lit up by the flip of a switch?
I would be so proud to show them how we honor their legacy to this day. We still have some original furniture in the home, their formal china on display and have brought the mansion back to its glory from the days of being the largest sugar producing plantation in the South. I think they would agree that we are living the life of a modern day Sugar Baron.
If you have not visited Houmas House lately, plan a trip soon. There's always something new to see. Expanded gardens, the Inn, revamped menus in multiple restaurants are just a few reasons to travel down the Historic River Road and make a stop at Houmas House. See you soon.
See you soon,
