West Feliciana Parish

Find your St. Francisville …

Discover St. Francisville, Louisiana, nationally recognized for its extensive historic district, surrounding plantation homes and 19th-century gardens. Founded in the early 1800s on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River, the quaint little town boasts numerous informative markers telling the stories of its gingerbread-trimmed townhouses, fine commercial structures and historic churches. Interpretive programs are regularly presented at the two state historic sites in the parish – Rosedown Plantation and Oakley Plantation, where John James Audubon painted many of his Birds of America series in 1821. Today the rolling Feliciana hills and unspoiled woodlands plus the in-town sports park provide opportunities for year-round recreation. Our unique Bed & Breakfast inns and motels offer comfortable accommodations for weekend getaways, and our small-town festivals celebrate everything from hummingbirds and homegrown art to a real country Christmas.

Unique Treasures…

Cafés and restaurants, boutique shops, art and antiques galleries filled with the unexpected entice visitors to St. Francisville and West Feliciana again and again. Five beautifully restored historic plantation homes and gardens are open daily for guided tours. Every March, as the azaleas reach their peak of bloom, additional private homes are featured on the annual Audubon Pilgrimage commemorating the artist's stay in the area, with hostesses clad in award-winning period costumes.


West Feliciana is the perfect setting for intimate weddings, romantic weekends, celebrations of special anniversaries or occasions, outdoor recreation, or simply for rest and relaxation. In St. Francisville, time seems to stop just long enough to make a memory that will last a lifetime.
