“See how cotton farming has evolved over the years”
Contrast a working cotton plantation of the early 1800's with a modern cotton plantation and gin of today. Follow the early Natchez planters and their slaves through an evolution from the wilderness to a thriving 1850's cotton plantation, and then beyond the War Between the States to a struggling new way of life. Listen to the slave customs, secret music, and their surprising relationships with the master, mistress, and overseer. Walk through authentically furnished slave quarters, rare steam gin, and other plantation dependencies. Then journey forward to the present as you tour an 1800 acre cotton plantation with a computerized 900 bales-per-day cotton gin. Frogmore is the only tour of its kind in the South and receives rave reviews by all attendees. We have received the Louisiana Tourism award in 1999 and have been featured in Country Discoveries magazine along with AAA Southern Traveler, La. Cultural Vistas, as well as many other magazines and PBS documentaries.
