We had a great tour of the Sugar Cane museum in Cardenas. Our guide gave us an overview of the process of harvesting and refining sugarcane from start to finish. At the height of its production, slaves did the back-breaking work. It was a labor-intensive process that left us with a deep appreciation and respect for those who toiled here. 💙🇨🇺💙 #cuba#sugar#sugarplantation#refinery#traveldesigner#travelbychrystal#cardenas
The Laura plantation: a Creole sugar plantation from the 1800s situated about an hour outside of New Orleans. We learned a lot of interesting and sombre history there. #neworleans#plantationlife#sugarplantation
Just an hour south of downtown Houston is a plantation house that has been the headquarters for a rum distillery, a sugar cane empire, an oilfield and a priceless collection of period antiques curated by one woman. In this weeks blog, I visit the Varner-Hogg plantation, where wealth, pain, scandal and grandeur have all played a role. Link to blog in bio.
Have you visited any of Texas’ remaining plantation homes?
