People live here and work here. Evergreen Plantation is located on the west bank of the Mississippi River, between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. On the Tour we met some really cool people. I took a few photos of them. If they ever get a chance to view this post, I hope they know how much I appreciate talking with them and learning about where they come from. It made the whole experience fun. Below are some photos of the guests and tour guides.

I also took a few photos of the plantation. It was huge let me tell ya. The history behind this plantation is so beautiful, it was totally different than what most of us were taught about slavery in the south. It opened my eyes to so much, please if you get a chance to visit the Evergreen Plantation… so, I loved it.

Side note: I tried to use a filter on these photos and it made the edges look horrible. Forgive me lol
