This watercolor by Craig Routh is of the famous Houmas House Plantation, one of the few antebellum plantations that survived through the Civil War. Located on the banks of the Mississippi, along the River Road in Louisiana, the Houmas Plantation has a rich and fascinating history. The land was purchased from the Houmas Indians in the 1700's and became a large and established sugar cane plantation in the early 1800’s. Before the Civil War it was called the “The Sugar Palace” because of the immense amount of sugar, 20 million pounds a year, and the wealth it produced. The plantation house you see today was built in 1840 and was known as the Crown Jewel of Louisiana’s River Road. In 2003 Houmas House was purchase by Kevin Kelly who restored the plantation back to its Greek Revival architectural heritage.
