Laura Plantation, first completed in 1805, is a restored historic Louisiana Creole plantation on the west bank of the Mississippi River near Vacherie, Louisiana, open for guided tours. Formerly known as Duparc Plantation, it is significant for its early 19th century Créole-style raised big house and several surviving outbuildings, including six slave quarters. The plantation house has been restored after a fire in 2004. It is one of only 15 plantation complexes in Louisiana with this degree of complete structures. Because of its historical importance, the plantation is on the National Register of Historic Places. The site, in St. James Parish, Louisiana, is also included on the Louisiana African American Heritage Trail.
