The Laurel Valley Plantation and Museum is the largest surviving 19th and 20th century sugar plantation in the United States. The sugar cane fields, slave quarters, and general store featuring local arts and crafts still exist as a tribute to a way of life of the early settlers along Bayou Lafourche. Items sold in the store come from the Bayou Lafourche area and are made by local residents.
At this same location, The Center for Traditional Boat Building recently constructed a work area where local boat builders demonstrate their workmanship on scheduled days.
To promote activities, a Fall Heritage Festival and Reunion occurs on the second Sunday of October, Christmas Open House on the first Sunday of December, and a Spring Heritage Festival on the last Sunday in April. We also have country gourmet suppers featuring local chefs, whose culinary imaginations always exceed expectations.

The General Store, located on LA. Hwy. 308 about a mile south of Thibodaux, is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. and weekends 11 a.m.- 5 p.m.
