This is considered by many in the tour industry as the best historical plantation tour in the Mississippi Valley. The plantation was run by four Creole women; most notable was Laura, from where the plantation gets it's name. The women ran the plantation over 60 years, using slave labor to do it.
You will get to view and enter the slave quarters, as part of this tour. On this tour, you will hear stories of all aspects of the plantation life. The fable Br'er Rabbit was first recorded here.
The Plantation house was nearly destroyed by fire back in 2003, but it was rebuilt to the original design using building materials from antique homes that was disassembled and sold off in pieces. The rebuilding process is a story in itself.
Tours of Laura are about an hour and 15 minutes.

Review by Ron from Stevensville MI
This tour began the minute we boarded the bus and drove an hour to the plantation. Very knowledgeable and passionate tour guide. You could tell he loved what he was doing. The guide at Laura's Plantation was also very knowledgeable and the history learned was appreciated. Also, we were picked up and dropped off at our condo which made things so easy convenient.

My girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour on 12/13/13. The history of the plantation was fascinating and the tour guide, Rose was excellent. Her passion for this history of the plantation was evident. We wished we had more time. (Posted on 12/18/2013)
