Built on the grounds of an 1882 plantation, this meeting facility is next to Benedict’s Restaurant in Mandeville. See: benedictsplantation.net/?page_id=142
Getting there is easy. From the New Orleans area, cross the lake. Go straight on Causeway Blvd. Turn left at the 3rd stop light, approximately 1.2 miles after the end of the bridge.
Coming from Baton Rouge or areas to the west, exit I-12 at exit 63. Take the split to the right (south) marked Mandeville and proceed down Causeway Blvd (Highway 190, although 190 turns off before you do) for approximately 3 miles. Turn right at the first traffic light.
Whichever way you turn off of Causeway Blvd., it is a very short block. Turn left and then right into the restaurant. Park near the back area, past the restaurant. (The restaurant may be open that day and needs the front parking for its customers.) The meeting building is the second one.
Contact: Benedict’s Plantation, 1144 N. Causeway Blvd, Mandeville, Louisiana, (985) 626-4557.
