Begin your quest for treasures in St. Francisville where our antebellum plantations and townhomes are gems. For a map, complete with mileage and directions, stop in at the West Feliciana Historical Society Museum, home of the Audubon Pilgrimage each March.

From there, enjoy the Walk Through History tour that interprets over 140 structures on the National Register of Historic Places, including some of our churches: Grace Episcopal Church and Cemetery the state's second oldest Episcopal congregation, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church designed by Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard, and the United Methodist Church whose 150-year-old belfry was moved from Bayou Sara.

Ferdinand Street boasts over a dozen shops filled with delightful gifts and antiques. And only minutes from "downtown" is the Locust Grove Cemetery, where the first wife of Jefferson Davis is buried. The Energy Center at the Riverbend Power Plant is a treat for visitors young and old alike. So for birding, biking, picnicking, honeymooning, or browsing art galleries, West Feliciana is the place!
