    All About Oak Alley Plantation!

    Oak Alley Plantation is the Grande Dame of Louisiana River Road plantations! Our 1/4 mile alley of 300-year-old oaks, and our 170+ year old 'Big House' are the inspiration for movies, weddings, and dream vacations! New exhibit, 'Slavery at Oak Alley' is very moving, very educational. Topics: Historical Site, Civil War, Antebellum, Louisiana Plantation, Sugarcane, Slavery.

    “Making a way out of no way” is often the phrase used to describe this dogged self-determination, and the spirit it references has left some powerful slavery histories: Enslaved women forced to become concubines leveraged their position and acquired freedom for their mixed-race children. Freed men became the owners of their own family members, in an effort to keep that family intact. Not as obvious as open rebellion, such examples show enslaved people quietly attempting to better their lives, rather than accept subjugation.

    A wonderful visitor, Manda Gibbs, took this amazing shot and shared it us to share with you! Thanks Manda!!!!!!
