One thinks In visiting the Cane Creole it all about slavery! Well your wrong as the park focus is on the transition of farming and the changes occurred back in the day! The home are amazing and well worth the trip

We really enjoyed our walks around the plantation grounds. We were unable to tour the houses, as one was being worked on and the other is a private residence. The staff was helpful and enthusiastic. The surrounding area is also a great place for birdwatching!
