This French Acadian cotton plantation was built in the 1880's and was won in a card game during the 1890's by Theogene Bertrand and has been called these last 120 plus years the "Betrand Plantation".

This estate has been minimally updated and features all of the original outbuildings including the dry good store, the two barns, the chicken coop, potato shed, newer chicken coop, the dairy barn and the black smith shop that sat on this beautiful property back when it was built in the 1880's.  The upstairs of the house has never been updated at all except to add electricity in the 1940's and features the original cypress planks and ladder to get upstairs where the young men slept. 

The estate features many of the original farm equipment that has been on this property for many years.
