Date: October 21, 2018
Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM CDT
Historic Carter House, built between 1817-1820
Event Description:
The Carter House, 30325 Carter Cemetery Road in Springfield, will be open for tours on Sunday, October 21 at 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM and the public is invited.  The open house is sponsored by the Historic Carter House Society Inc. (HCHS), the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that manages the house.  The Carter House, on the National Register for Historic Places, is the only plantation still standing in Livingston Parish and the property dates back to 1804.  During the tour you will hear some of the history of the house as well as previous residents and this is quite an educational experience.  Children under the age of 12 will be admitted free.  The fee for adults is $5.00.  All funds received from tours will go toward restoration work on the house.  We encourage you to bring your children, and the grandparents should definitely bring the grandchildren.  Light refreshments will be served at the end of the tour.  If you are looking for a place to host a special event, you should visit the Carter House.  For special tours give us a call at 225-747-0660!

Fundraiser - Raffle:  To raise additional funds HCHS is raffling a beautiful wine basket.  Along with the two (2) bottles of red and two (2) bottles of white are some yummy items, we’ll call “A Taste of Louisiana”.  Some are crunchy and salty, delicious and sweet, and others are quite savory, while some are spicy with some heat.  One item has a picture of a well-known “Saint”.  Tickets are $2.00/each or for $10.00 you get 6, so spend the $10.00 and get a little lagniappe.  Tickets are being sold at all the Carter House Open House dates and at the Carter Plantation Golf Pro Shop.  The drawing will be held at the end of the open house on Sunday, October 21 and the refreshments will be an Ice Cream Treat.  For additional information or to make arrangements to purchase tickets, please give us a call at 225-747-0660.
