Shadows on the Teche reviews
We took a tour during our spring break vacation. Tours are scheduled to start at 15 past the hour, and we arrived at 11:30 and thought we had to wait a while, but they went ahead a started ours right.... more »
Very interesting tour. Rooms are only connected via outdoor verandas and stairs. Tour guides were very knowledgeable. Had video of upper floors for those who could not do the stairs. more »
And incredible Plantation home once owned by the Week's family and maintained by slaves. The tour guide was Chris and he was incredibly knowledgeable of the plantations history dated back to the 1800s. The grounds are well-kept and there is even a cemetery for the Week's family. The home has many original relics. Only the first and second floors are available for viewing and the third floor and other rooms are not available for viewing. I recommend the touring of this property. My visit was on April 27th 2019 at 1:30 p.m.
Great place except that it give black people a voice. The history of slavery in America is nothing to be afraid of and should be seen as the "good ole days." They should be ashamed of taking that pleasure away from us.
