Louisiana State Cotton Museum

Cotton!  White gold!  From field to factory, cotton historically employed more Americans than any other industry.  Cotton has impacted world trade, technological development, the American Expansion, African-American history, the Civil War, and the Great Depression.

This 30-acre museum complex has:

  • a 100+ year-old Planter's House original to the site, 

  • an original sharecropper's cabin

  • commissary

  • plantation church

  • replicated gin building and 

  • exhibit hall. 


Louisiana Cotton Museum, Lake Providence, East Carroll Parish, Louisiana

You can also operate a music mixing-board, listen to the blues on an old-time jukebox, and watch an orientation video.  Exhibits detailing how cotton was historically planted, grown, picked, ginned and manufactured, and how cotton has played a pivotal role in American culture.  Displays of operations of a typical cotton plantation with cotton for the major cash crop. 

The historic Homer Cotton Gin, Louisiana's first electric powered cotton gin, is housed at the Cotton Museum, also.cotton.stalk.jpg (228561 bytes)
