They have guided tours of the home and grounds along the Mississippi. The home is very ornate and interesting. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. Tour takes about an hour.

What a wonderful place. Amazing. We visited as participants in the annual War of 1812 event and loved it. The property and staff are amazing. Well worth the stop to see the mansion.

Villa Louis is meticulously restored to its 1890 state, based on numerous photos and written accounts. The mansion is not huge, but is packed with Victorian-era items. The villa can be toured for $12.50 for adults, and the guides are very good. Very interesting history...More
