Addition to the plantations, other historic places to visit are the historic district of St. Francisville, Afton Villa Gardens and a nearby Civil War battlefield, Port Hudson. Within the historic district there are several historic churches; Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, Grace Episcopal Church & Cemetery and First United Methodist.
The historic district is speckled with historic private homes, offices and shops. The courthouse with its recently restored towered clock is located across from Grace Church. We strongly recommend strolling the historic district (or referred to as Main St.) by the only two streets.
