Nestled on an entire city block in the third oldest city in Louisiana, this estate reminds visitors of Tara, the majestic plantation home featured in the movie, "Gone With The Wind".

The home has over 10,000 useable sq. feet +/-under roof.
This stately Colonial Revival home continues to exude an air of southern gentility and sophistication.
The Dubuisson Mansion is one of the most photographed homes in Louisiana. It has been the preferred site of many prestigious fundraisers and its opulent setting has helped charities and several current politicians raise thousands of dollars.
Edward Benjamin Dubuisson was a wealthy and prominent plantation owner (his plantation encompassed 3,000 acres), banker and politician. He commissioned this home to reflect his affluent and respectable status in society. Today, the Dubuisson Estate remains one of Louisiana's finest testaments to a bygone era.
Some antique furniture original to the home remains. Other period furniture can be purchased.
