St. Joseph Plantation is a historic plantation located on the west bank of the Mississippi River in the town of Vacherie, St. James Parish, Louisiana, United States of America. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

St. Joseph Plantation is located at 3535 Hwy 18 Vacherie, LA 70090, adjacent to Oak Alley Plantation and up-river from Laura Plantation. The plantation was first owned by Josephine Aime Ferry in 1830, but the Ferry family sold it to Joseph Waguespack (1802-1892) in 1877 (Waguespack's son, Aubert Florian, owned Laura Plantation). In 1890 Saturnine Waguespack merged St. Joseph Plantation with Felicity Plantation to form the St. Joseph Plantation and Manufacturing Company. It is today maintained by descendants of the Waguespack and Simon families.

  • We very much enjoyed the Mourning Tour. I do believe I would discuss the Doctor's Catholic faith more because it would have been very much intertwined in his and his family's life and death rituals...

  • Great plantation to visit. There was no one else on the tour with us. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Several enslaved quarters to see.

  • Very affordable plantation. This one is privately owned by the family some still live on the property today. It is small but you get free roam to explore the grounds even after closing. A movie was being filmed while we were there but it didn't interfere at all. We booked through Groupon so got a great deal for the 2 of us. Our tour guide was amazing. It isn't super popular so the group was just us which made for a very personal tour and allowed us to ask as many questions and hear multiple stories. The most interesting thing to us was the map upstairs that shows all the old plantation plots. This really put into perspective just how many there were.
  • Had a great experience 😊 Jacob was great guide and we got lucky there was just the 4 of us so it was like a private tour 😀 would definitely do it again. Just wish the was more of a tour on the grounds with the guide other than that pretty interesting
