Adding to the list of plantations visited during our visit to the New Orlean’s area, is Houmas House Plantation.  This Greek Revival plantation that sits in lush gardens that are well maintained. The house is really two homes connected by a carriageway with the older home dating back to around 1775 per the docent during our private tour this evening. The private tour was not planned, but just happen that we were the only ones to be present for the hours tour time. Learn more about the history of the Houmas House and its connection to Native Americas, slavery, and why it is also known as the Sugar Palace here

This plantation stands out from the others we’ve seen because of the gardens, three restaurants, and the option for overnight accommodations. In 2015, this home beat out another famous home- Biltmore Estate according to the USA Today.  at #2.
