At St. Joseph Plantation

From October 1st through November 3rd, St. Joseph Plantation announces its annual “Mourning Tour” featuring the customs and rituals of 18th and 19th century Creole Louisiana. The house will be “dressed in full deep mourning”, according to the old prescribed protocol of mourning

On the weekends of October 8th and 9th and October 29th and 30th, we will have live characters portraying some of the people that lived at St. Joseph and their mourning customs. You will be both educated and entertained by these live re-enactments. There will be people portraying Dr. Cazemir Bernard Mericq and Josephine Aime Ferry who lived at St. Joseph at different times. Please come visit us during the month of October for our “Mourning Tour.”
