Louisiana Travel : A Mourning Tour


A Mourning Tour
Vacherie, Louisiana 

St. Joseph Plantation presents its annual “Mourning Tour” October 1 through November 2.  The house is dressed in full “deep mourning” in honor of the long-time Catholic customs and rituals of 19th century Creole Louisiana.

What makes a tour at St. Joseph Plantation stand out amongst other plantation tours is the unique aspect of the house’s tour guides being descendants of the original home owners.  The tours give you an insider’s glimpse of how life was in the 19th century through the eyes of family members who lovingly restored the home and are familiar with its rich history.
