Summary:
In the heyday of the Old South, as slaves labored under the hot sun, fortunes were made in cotton and cane. Along the Mississippi delta in Louisiana, some of the most impressive mansions in America stand as testaments to the vast wealth and widespread suffering of a long-vanished era. Go inside these timeless reminders of the Old South, and trace the peculiarities of their designs with noted architectural historian Richard Guy Wilson. See the "steamboat gothic" architecture of San Francisco Plantation and get a behind-the-scenes tour of Destrahan Plantation with curator Don Didier who reveals the surprising role that yellow fever played in plantation history. Go inside Henry Clay's exquisite bedroom suite in Rosedown Plantation, and walk the perfectly preserved grounds of Shadows on the Teche, one of the grandest of all the BAYOU ESTATES. It's a memorable tour of the finest homes of the antebellum south and a reminder of a vanished way of life.
