The Sugar Mill
Historian and preservationist Sarah Mason will lead a tour of the sugar mill at 3 pm on Saturday. This tour is open and available to anyone with a Festival Pass or Saturday concert ticket. Please join Sarah for her outstanding presentation. Here's her bio:
Sarah Mason grew up on historic Rosalie Plantation in Central Louisiana and was instilled with a love of history and old buildings at an early age. After studying anthropology at Hendrix College, she attended an archaeological field school in Santa Barbara, California where she honed her interest in heritage management and historic preservation. She then moved to New Orleans where she gained experience volunteering and interning with the Historic New Orleans Collection, Touro Infirmary Archives, the Preservation Resource Center, and Save Our Cemeteries. She obtained a Master of Preservation Studies degree from Tulane University in December 2013. Her thesis focused on the remaining built environment of the 19th century sugar industry in Louisiana and explored future uses for the sugarhouse at Rosalie.
