Last week, our cousin was in town so we decided to do a little site seeing while she was here. Lots of plantation choices but which plantation to see? We finally decided on Oak Alley, and we are so glad we did. It's a lovely place on a beautiful piece of property and the tour was very nice. They actually tried to find a balance between the folks who lived in the "big house" and those enslaved people who actually BUILT that entire house!
A little celebration of the craftsmanship of the slaves.
The slave quarters are also "restored" so you can get a tiny peek into that world. Humbling to walk where those people lived and worked.
One last thing - a HUGE gift shop and even a bar right on site. It's a pretty amazing place - go it you get a chance!
