Summary

1995 Charles E. Peterson Prize, Honorable Mention
Significance: It is not known exactly when Mary Plantation was built, though the land 7 leagues below New Orleans on the left bank of the Mississippi River, was originally settled by the Chaouchas Indians. Early European habitation was recorded on a 1723 French colonial map of Louisiana. According to the America State Papers, a prominent Frenchman, Louis Martin Bragnier de Clouet, a critical figure in the development of New Orleans and the land below it, acquired this track of land in 1774 from a complete Spanish land grant.
