Sunset has always been known for its contributions to the agricultural industry as a leading producer of sweet potatoes. But today it is also known for a popular horticultural event, The Celebration of Herbs and Gardens. Held each May, the Sunset Garden Club hosts this daylong event. Seventy-five vendors display native plants, herbs, vegetable plants, yard art and herbal products. Another stop for plant lovers is La Caboose Bed & Breakfast, also home to La Caboose Jams and Jellies. Three acres surround the collection of restored train cars, now used as sleeping quarters and includes pecan trees, orchards, lush gardens of herbs and native flowers. Just on the outskirts of town and well worth the drive, is Chretien Point Plantation. Once the center of a 10,000 acre cotton plantation, this home’s history includes stories of the Civil War and a staircase that was replicated and used in Gone With the Wind!
