Magnolia Mound Plantation

BATON ROUGE, LA

BRIEF STORY ABOUT THE
OVERSEER’S HOUSE AT THE PLANTATION

In the 1960’s Schoolboy Cleve's mother Mrs. Susie (Martin) White Born 1894 lived there. As descendents of the Slaves the real story is yet to be told on how this remarkable lady raised 9 children without an education but with the grace of God! Please, make a reservation to see the remarkable plantation.

Magnolia Mounds Overseer’s House is a double-sided house, original to the plantation c. 1870. It was found a few blocks away and moved back to the plantation proper. The house is furnished as if the overseer and his family are still living there and includes an early 19th century sick room. Overseer’s House, original to Magnolia Mound, was found in the surrounding residential area and moved to its present site.
