HURRICANE IDA NOTICE
Our museum is CLOSED FOR REPAIRS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Our offices and the museum received extensive damge during the hurricane and we are working hard to get things back up and running. This will take time. We will still able to host smaller outdoor events (such as weddings) starting in December but we have cancelled our Fall Marketplace. We are intent on hosting the Spring Marketplace but it will depend on other factors in the community, such as our volunteer base and hotel availability. Due to our limited employees, unusable office space and other constraints, we are communicating via email only at this time. Please visit our Contact Us page for email addresses. Visit our Marketplace page for more information on the Spring show and visit our Event Rentals page for information about your upcoming event.
Southdown Plantation/Terrebonne Museum – A 19th century sugar plantation manor house, filled with antiquities and historical items.
Fully-guided tours of the House and Slaves Quarters are available. Self-guided tours of our Workers’ Cabin also available.
We were short on time.. So this was the closest plantation house to us.. It did not disappoint. The tour guide was great and he didn't rush us through. We got a private tour and really enjoyed it. Def. Stop by!
