Antebellum (pre-1861-65 Civil War) homes are concentrated in LA and MS. Most plantations had extensive fields, worked by slaves growing cotton, sugarcane, rice or indigo.

Some properties have been divided up, and rely on tourists for massive upkeep expenses. Many do not allow indoor photography.

The Galveston, Natchez, Natchez Trace and New Orleans galleries offer related images of period town homes, some quite large, that were never plantations.

These images are only offered here. The copyright watermark does not appear.
