An intimate view into the lives of plantation owners and slaves in Antebellum Louisiana

Within the boundaries of the "Habitation Haydel," as the Whitney Plantation was originally known, the story of the Haydel family of German immigrants and the slaves that they held were intertwined. In 2014, the Whitney Plantation opened its doors to the public for the first time in its 262 year history as the only plantation museum in Louisiana with a focus on slavery. Through museum exhibits, memorial artwork, restored buildings and hundreds of first-person slave narratives, visitors to Whitney will gain a unique perspective on the
lives of Louisiana's enslaved people.
