Frogmore Cotton Plantation & Gins

The story of cotton, then and now, is told at the Frogmore Cotton Plantation & Gins.  The 1800-acre working cotton plantation has 18 restored antebellum structures that date from the early 1800s.

The tour takes you back in history to the early Natchez planters and their slaves.  You’ll see a rare Smithsonian-quality steam cotton gin along the way.  The tour continues through history to modern day plantation life—the planting, harvesting, and computerized ginning of cotton.  If you visit the plantation during “cotton picking time”, you can help pick cotton and weigh it in.

Frogmore Plantation has won the Louisiana Tourism Award and was selected by Rand McNally as a “must see site.”
