"Oak Alley Plantation Home"

Oak Alley Plantation
Vacherie, Louisiana
Circa: 1839

Located on the Mississippi River between the historic Louisiana cities of New Orleans and Baton Rouge,
Oak Alley Plantation has been called the "Grande Dame of the Great River Road". Nowhere else in the
south will you find such a spectacular setting! The quarter-mile canopy of giant live oak trees, believed to be
nearly 300 years old, forms an impressive avenue leading to the classic Greek-revival style antebellum home.

Built in 1839 by a wealthy French Creole sugar planter from New Orleans, Oak Alley Plantation today
offers daily guided tours, bed & breakfast accommodations in 19th-century cottages, a Cajun/Creole
restaurant offering local favorites, a café and ice cream parlor, an impressive gift shop and a most
spectacular setting for weddings, parties and other private functions.
