The Laura Plantation that still grows sugar cane along the River Road is a country style house not a fancy house as in Gone With The Wind I have read that book three times but the guide said life just wasnt like that. The first photo is a slave cabin but I shouldnt think it was green as it looks two families lived to a cabin. Records show there were 175 slaves on the plantation in 1804 and records their names ages and the money they were worth. Laura who wrote a dairy about the place didnt die till 1963. A very historical place to visit
