The Carter Plantation is an historic plantation house located on Louisiana highway 1038, southwest of Springfield in what is now Livingston Parish, Louisiana, United States.

The property was purchased by Thomas Freeman in 1817, from James Rheem, who acquired it from a Spanish land grant in 1804. Freeman, a free person of color, was the first African American to own property in the Greensburg District (Saint Helena Parish), the southern portion of which became Livingston Parish.

The home was completed in 1820, and it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) on February 23, 1979.
