Whitney is the only plantation museum in the region with an exclusive focus on slavery. Visitors are guided through the 18th century plantation grounds while learning about the forced labor system of a sugar and rice plantation. Sixteen original structures including the original big house and cabins still remain on site. As a site of remembrance, Whitney Plantation features several memorials dedicated to the enslaved who were forced to live and work here and throughout Louisiana.
