History & Culture

The two plantations at Cane River Creole National Historical Park represent a treasure trove of Louisiana's historical and cultural riches. As Native American, French, Spanish, and African cultures merged, it led to the development of a distinctive Creole culture, which still remains today. This culture cuts across racial categories and draws from many traditions
