Historic Riverlands: Two Tours That Highlight History in the River Parishes

by Buddy Boe


Retracing the footsteps of those who fought for a better existence will bring you to the soul of the region. The essence and resounding heartbeat of New Orleans Plantation Country can be found at Historic Riverlands Christian Center in the River Parishes of Louisiana.

Here you will explore where certain aspects of history stop; and discover how Historic Riverlands became a pillar and beacon of hope for those who sought something greater.

The safety of spiritual communion became a place where the worn and weary were able to reconcile and recharge, unabashed by the surrounding intolerant perspectives.

Unbeknownst to those at the time, the move of this church structure would provide security for generations to come.

History has a way of captivating the eyes and ears of an audience; connecting each person to the very root of what makes us all the same.

In the Jim Crow era when segregation and degradation were the status quo, a community of underserved people longed for a place of peace and spiritual solace.

Stoic and unmovable, located in the River Parishes of Louisiana, lie roots that are thick and intertwined mirroring those that are characteristic of the mossy oaks abundant throughout the landscape. A society once torn, now thrives.

Immerse yourself, in the truth that is being told about the trials and tribulations that unfolded into a triumphant unification of voices … heard, listened to, and cultivated.

Historic Riverlands offers two tours: 1) a tour of the church which gives you a glimpse into its history by people who have attended the church for their entire lives, and 2) Soul River, a journey into the impact of African Americans in music starting with call and response to modern-day R&B and Hip-Hop.

The perfect stop for individuals and groups, you need to plan for your experience since tours are by reservation only. To book your trip, visit their website for more information: https://historicriverlands.com/.
