Product Description

Like damsels gliding through a glittering ball, the antebellum homes of the great Mississippi River Road, cast a hypnotic allure. Flirting with adoring suitors, they prance, they strut, they flaunt their status, still delighting visitors who come calling in a steady stream.. Plantation Portraits captures timeless images of an era when two-thirds of America s known millionaires lived along the this meandering byway. These palatial mansions were adorned with silver doorknobs and massive crystal chandeliers. Step back to an era when cotton was king and sugar cane was the new white gold. Meet the sugar barons, their wives, their children and their slaves. Destrehan. Laura. Houmas House. Madewood. Magnolia Mound. Nottoway, Oak Alley. Shadows-On-The-Teche. Southdown Tezcuco. Woodland. Hear their compelling stories of survival in a modern world.


The documentary celebrates the extravagance of the homes built during the boom years of cotton and sugarcane plantations(1830-1860)...rare Louisiana treasures. --TV Guide
