Known as the “Grande Dame of the Great River Road,” the Oak Alley Plantation is one of the most iconic representations of its type in the American South. Famous for a memorable Antebellum Mansion and a canopied path created by a more than 800 meter long double row of live oak trees, Oak Alley has been featured in movies and television shows ranging from Knight Rider and Primary Colors to the Young and the Restless and Django Unchained. Mary went on the OA guided indoor tour, while I grabbed my camera and enjoyed the beautiful outdoor weather and blissful photoremedy on the grounds of this spectacular National Historic Landmark. Highlights included:
Somber Slave Quarter Shots (also featured in our February 8, 2015 post)
Unique Trees and Vegetation
Hometown Cajun Food (B & C Seafood)
I later learned that Oak Alley is known for its famous mint juleps. I’m not sure how we missed that, but it’s good to know we now have another reason to return to Louisiana!
Great pics!!!! I enjoyed them all, and thinking about their meaning. J
Thanks, J! You bring up a great point – it does offer a lot to think about it!
