LeBeau Plantation, Arabi, Louisiana

After I shot the Windsor Ruins, I decided to look for a still-standing abandoned plantation house to photograph. LeBeau is just south of New Orleans in St. Bernard Parish, sitting on a big lot all by itself, with a Domino sugar refinery in the background.

I didn't get any shots of the inside, it's all boarded up--I'll trespass for a photo, but I draw the line at breaking and entering. Plus there was a fire inside about 25 years ago, so I don't know how stable the floors are. And if you fell through you'd easily break a leg, because like a lot of houses in south Louisiana, it's raised several feet off the ground.

Supposedly it's haunted, but I don't really believe in stuff like that.
