Buena Vista & Acadia Plantation Cemeteries

While many plantations have been lost along River Road, historic remnants are hidden among sugarcane fields. Descendants of the enslaved at these burial sites have researched their an­cestry back to 1852. The land is now the site of a proposed plastics com­plex. Construction was delayed after opposition by the Corps of Engineers. United Nations have raised concerns of continued environmental racism increasing regional health issues.
