Cane River Creole National Historical Park
Derry, LA 71416

Join the Cane River Creole National Historical Park in remembering and honoring those who were enslaved on Magnolia Plantation. After taking free self-guided tours of the site, visitors will be invited to walk amidst luminaries representing the enslaved men, women and children of the plantation site. When possible, the luminaries will be marked with the names, ages, places of origin and skills of the enslaved, as retrieved from historical documentation.
