Evergreen Plantation is a plantation located on the west side of the Mississippi River in St. John the Baptist Parish, near Wallace, Louisiana, and along Louisiana Highway 18. The main house was constructed mostly in 1790, and renovated to its current Greek Revival style in 1832. The plantation's historical commodity crop was sugarcane, cultivated by enslaved African Americans until emancipation.For travelers who use our world travel planner, Edgard holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Evergreen Plantation and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
The plantation operated until about 1930, when the Depression resulted in the owners abandoning the house. The plantation continued to produce sugar cane under the direction of the bank that owned it, and it is still a working sugar cane plantation today. The house was extensively restored during the 1940s, with 300,000 bricks from the demolished Uncle Sam Plantation used in the restoration.

I felt Evergreen had a nice balance of slavery and mansion history. Our guide was very knowledgable and all staff friendly and helpful. The $2. water bottle was a fun souvenir!
