What Our Friends and Visitors Say..

Gloria Maurin

Dear Friends at St. Joseph Plantation On Wednesday, May 18, eighteen of our members toured the home. It was truly a memorable occasion for our group. They were excited and overwhelmed with the amount of history that our tour guide gave in her presentation. Everybody wants to come back and I’m sure we will. Gloria L. Maurin, President German Acadian Coast Genealogical and Historical Society

The kids had a great time at St. Joseph Plantation. Many of them thought it was the best part of the trip. They thought all the outbuildings were interesting, especially the kitchen. I hear that you are restoring the sugar mill. I’m looking forward to seeing that on my next visit. Debby Pigman Louise S. McGehee School

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

We had a wonderful time at the wedding and are so happy that we decided to have it at St. Joseph. I wouldn’t have changed anything about the day. Thank you for helping to make my dream wedding a reality! Destrie Horgan

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…

I was at the plantation in early July. I am from Ohio and came to Louisiana to visit my son. Seeing the plantation was one of the most important things that happened in my life. I love them and anything to do with them. I had a wonderful time there and plan to come back i Feb 2006. Keep up the good work, people need to see things like this beautiful home. You have done a great job on the house and grounds. Love it!!!!!!!! Marty McCormick
