My husband and I very much enjoyed our tour of Melrose Plantation. This place has so much history and beauty, that it is a must if you're in the Natchitoches area. It's super interesting that some original artifacts are still in the plantation:)

We enjoyed the grounds and history at this plantation. The drive along the Cane Lake was beautiful. The plantation needs some TLC very badly to maintain the history and beauty of the home. The huge oak tree were a reason along for the visit.

We absolutely loved the tour. Our guide was very informative and friendly. He did a great job explaining the history of every building we toured. A must do if you're on Natchotoches.

Pay to take the guided tour, the history is amazing! And as the others have said, a couple of hours will give you enough time to wander the the grounds and peak into the other buildings.
