Rosedown Plantation

Rosedown Plantation is in my top 3 list of the most beautiful plantation gardens in Louisiana. However, the garden’s has the most distinguish history. Daniel and Martha Tumbull build Rosedown in 1834. The gardens were overseen by Martha who keep record of every plant that was planted in the garden and where it was planted. Her journal of the garden is keep in the LSU Archives and a copy is used to maintain the gardens.
