About Us
The 440-acre area now referred to as the Burden Museum and Gardens, originally Windrush Plantation, was owned by the Burden family from the mid 1800s until the final segment was donated to LSU in the early 1990s.
Burden Center
Burden Center Video
(Video) The Burden Center is home to the All-America rose garden, nature trails and a conference center. Much of the research focuses on ornamental plants, turfgrasses, and fruits and vegetables. A research goal is to find out what plants can perform best under the hot, humid conditions of Louisiana. Visitors to the station see the results of award-winning research and relax among beautiful roses, azaleas and camellias and wander the trails that meander through the wooded grounds.
