Magnolia Mound, situated on a ridge overlooking the meandering Mississippi River, stands as Baton Rouge’s most notable eighteenth-century structure. This volume, researched and written under the direction of the Magnolia Mound Board of Trustees, traces the origin and development of this splendid Creole raised cottage, providing an intimate look at plantation life and the economic system that supported it.
In 1985 Magnolia Mound won a Certificate of Commendation from the American Association for State and Local History.
