Madewood, former 10,000 acre sugar plantation manor house, on the Bayou Lafourche south of Napoleonville, LA. Built for Col. Thomas Pugh between 1800|1848, designed by architect Henry Howard in Greek Revival style. Thomas Pugh died of yellow fever in 1852. During the Civil War, the lawns were used by Union troops as a hospital. Added to NRHP 30.10.1973, designated NHL 4.5.1983.
Madewood Plantation is a wonderful place to stay. It has vintage charm and is located in a peaceful setting. I felt like I was in a museum where I could walk on the antique rugs, sit on the antique furniture, and touch everything I admired. The staff and owner are very welcoming and attentive to your needs. I would recommend it to others, and is a place I would like to return.
