    What to Expect
    Welcome!  Come visit us at Ardoyne Plantation historic tours and event rental.  Our unique home was built in 1894 and is considered by the National Register of Historic Places to possibly be the largest and most elaborate remaining example of rural Victorian Gothic architecture in the state of Louisiana. This is one historical treasure one must see to believe, as it is filled with original family furniture and antiques. Direct descendants of the original owner, Senator John Dalton Shaffer, still reside in the home today and are there to share the stories passed down through 6 generations of this historical Sugarcane Plantation. So come take a tour with us and "meet" George Washington, Nellie Custis, Robert E. Lee and maybe even Uncle Benny's ghost!
