Traveling Trunks

Chris and Claire with Trunks

Park staff members Chris Evans and Claire Floyd display the contents of the park's two traveling trunks.


Bring the National Park Experience to Your Classroom!

For those of you that can't bring your students to the park, you can request one of our curriculum based traveling trunks. Our two trunks deal specifically with the Creole Culture and the Civil War. Each trunk contains lesson plans, videos, and numerous hands-on activities. Our trunks will allow your students to dress up like Civil War soldiers and experience the sensation of ginning cotton by hand. If you're interested in obtaining one of our trunks call 318 356-8441 or send an email to:
