Cane River Creole National Historical Park

Established in 1994, Cane River Creole National Historical Park serves to preserve the resources and cultural landscapes of the Cane River region. Located along the Cane River Lake, the park is approxiately 63 acres and includes two French Creole cotton plantations, Oakland and Magnolia. Both plantations reflect completeness in their historic settings, including landscapes, outbuildings, structures, furnishings, and artifacts. In fact, both units are the most intact French Creole cotton plantations in the United States.

In total, 65 historic structures and over 1,000,000 artifacts enhance the NPS mission as it strives to tell the story of the evolution of plantation agriculture through the perspective of the families that founded, labored, and flourished along the Cane River for over two hundred years.
