Set amongst a natural backdrop of vibrant gardens and two hundred-year-old oak trees, Nottoway Plantation captivates all with a brilliant blend of true Southern hospitality, history and mystery.

5 ST. FRANCISVILLE

Today we visit St. Francisville, Louisiana. Established in 1809, St. Francisville is the oldest town in the Florida Parishes. Below where St. Francisville is located currently, was a settlement call Bayou Sara in the 1790’s. When this settlement was destroyed by flooding and fires, many of the structures and artifacts were hauled by the bluff into St. Francisville, where they are still standing. The town is referred to as “two miles long and two yards wide,” but that doesn’t mean they have nothing to offer! Stop in at one the unique shops, historical homes, beautiful churches or breathtaking parks and you will agree with that! Spanish moss trees grow throughout the town, lending a beautiful southern comfort to the atmosphere.

6 NATCHEZ

Today we experience the charming river town of Natchez, MS which was first inhabited by the Natchez Indians and French explorers who shared the land. It was founded in 1716, making it the oldest city on the Mississippi.
