St. Francisville is a Small Beautiful Town in Louisiana

The gift shop in the town

Publications by organizations such as “tripsavvy,” “House Beautiful” and “Culture Trip” considered St. Francisville as a Small Beautiful and must be visited Town in Louisiana.

The town location is 40 miles (64 km) from my home, about 40 minute drive by car. The distance is not far for me.

What are objects interesting to see? Some of them are:
- plantation houses
- historical churches
- museum
- library
- botanical garden
- wildlife refuge
- trails
- market hall


One of old buildings

We said small town, because St. Francisville population is no more than 1,700 residents. We may have a look at Downtown by walking or biking only.

Botanical garden, namely Imahara is one of favorites tourist objects. There are several ponds, rare plants and miniature of Japanese mount Fuji.

The rare plants include varieties of:
- holly proprietaries
- palms
- magnolias
- oak
- azaleas
- camellias
- crape myrtles
- and many fruit trees

Is your place considered as a small town? How many residents?

  1. I think joining a tour to Louisiana's many plantation houses and museums, could be a unique experience.
    St. Francisville town sounds like a gem among the other towns.. a place worth visiting.
