Historic deal: Ormond Plantation is for sale

Anyone interested in buying a 229-year-old mansion that predates the Louisiana Purchase by more than a decade may want to take a look at Ormond Plantation.

Newly on the market, the $2.9 million mansion has been listed by Dorian Bennett Sotheby’s International Realty in New Orleans. Listing agent Ernesto Cadeira said the mansion’s West Indies style makes it a unique find.

Ormond Plantation, which is advertised as being among “the oldest indigo-sugar plantations left along the Mississippi River in Destrehan” is a 16-acre site and historic opportunity.

The plantation is a two-story building that includes a restaurant, full bar, six bed and breakfast rooms, and extensive wedding venue facilities. Cadeira emphasized they will remain open through the sale and would make an enticing venue to an adventurous buyer.

The plantation’s history goes back to the early 1780’s when Pierre d’Trepagnier was awarded a tract of land by Spanish Governor Don Bernardo deGalvez to recognize his service in subduing the British at Natchez during the American Revolution.
