This was a unique property in that it had experienced many renovations and additions over the years and owners. Enjoyed the true southern sleeping porch, as I remember them growing up in the south. The movie in the visitor center was informative. The grounds in...More

When touring St. Francisville you must stop in and take a tour of the Oakley Plantation. It is not too far from downtown St. Francisville and well worth your time. You can learn a little about Audubon's time in St. Francisville.

The museum and tour are a wonderful introduction to plantation life in Antebellum Louisiana . Well worth a visit.

If you are expecting a "Gone With the Wind" type of plantation, then this is not it. If you want a historically accurate plantation then this is a must see! I do advise anyone who goes and sees it in the winter months to dress...More

This was the first Plantation that I ever visited. The tour guide knew her history about the plantation.
