Built by enslaved people, the worker's quarters at Magnolia Plantation are solid structures with unusual brick work at the corners and gables.
The Cane River region is home to a unique culture; the Creoles. Generations of the same families of owners and workers, enslaved and tenant, lived on these lands for over 200 years. The park tells their stories and preserves the cultural landscape of Oakland and Magnolia Plantations, two of the most intact Creole cotton plantations in the United States.
