Plantation Side View

The successful collaboration that restored Destrehan Plantation provides a model for the restoration of other historic landmarks. The River Road Historical Society was formed in the late 1960s to assume ownership and care for what was a neglected building. Over time, it restored the home to reflect its antebellum roots while promoting the entire property in proper historical context.
