What Our Friends and Visitors Say..

Rita Long

My sister and myself recently discovered and visited your lovely plantation and grounds. We were quite impressed with our tour guide and her wealth of knowledge on family and local history. We’ve toured many plantations, but none with such thoroughness of information. The fact that a family as large as yours can come together and agree to disagree to achieve such a dream is impressive also. We hope to see you agan on our next trip South! Rita Long

We went to st. Joes during their mourning tour that shared how the family would have mourned the passing of family members. It gave a great insight into a past world. The buildings and grounds are fantastic! Not over the top ‘Gone with the wind’ type homestead but that’s never been the family’s way. Family members continue to staff the home and present tours which makes the experience so much richer. Loved it and you’d be missing out if you skip it because it’s not as grand as other plantations near by. Fantastic experience. Thank you to the lovely ladies…

Thank you so very much for all that eveyone did to make our wedding of November 11 such a beautifully memorable one. We are truly grateful to you all, and St. Joseph will remain dear to our hearts for many, many years. Glenn and Samantha Bergeron

I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of St. Joe’s last Friday. I was with a group of my aunts and uncle who grew up on the River Road. I have fond memories of our time spent on a great tour, thanks. Jack Cooper

Charlie and I visited on Saturday, June 30, and had a wonderful time. Kiley was a sweet and informed tour guide, and the staff was willing to spend time with us, telling us interesting tidbits from the history of the family. We will spread the word in Baton Rouge about this unique and interesting historic site. Best of luck Sue Bradford & Charles Kearns July 2007

My husband and I toured St. Joseph Plantation in April of this year and would like to say how much we enjoyed the tour as well as the family member who conducted the tour. She was extremely knowledgeable and amenable to us Canadian visitors. We will certainly come to Louisiana again and visit you in the near future. Are there plans for renovating Felicity plantation and having it open for tours as well? YES Thank you so much for the lovely experience. Mary Collins
