Linking two historic towns, this route gives you an opportunity to explore both Jackson and St. Francisville. Pick up a map at the West Feliciana Parish Historical Society Museum on Ferdinand Street and view the historical buildings and churches along Ferdinand and Royal streets. You can also browse for artworks, pottery and antiques. In Jackson, visit the Centenary State Historic Site, originally opened as the College of Louisiana in 1826. The Republic of West Florida museum has displays of Civil War relics, and at the Feliciana Cellars Winery, you could do a tour and tasting. This route includes flat stretches and some rolling terrain, and takes you past plantations that include Oakley House, Butler Greenwood, Locust Grove and The Myrtles (considered one of the most haunted places in Louisiana). Rosedown Plantation also is nearby.
