My World in Pennsylvania: Oak Alley Plantation

My World in Pennsylvania: Oak Alley Plantation | Oak Alley Plantation: Things to see! | Scoop.it

Built around 1837 (pre air conditioning and electricity!) the colonnades and aligned windows kept the whole house air conditioned in a true 'green' fashion. Elegance abounds from the grounds to the inside decor. Of course a mint julep has to be enjoyed in the cool shade. Overlooking the Mississippi River with only five foot levies I'm sure at some point made the owners nervous when the River decides to overflow. Today the levy is 40 feet and you are not able to view it but you still know it's there. We were fortunate enough to see a huge ship pass by that the top of the ship was over the levy. Of course the real characters of the plantation are the Oak Trees.
Lots of oak trees!

One of the many grizzled old oaks at Oak Alley in Louisiana. I love the way the branches are reaching out like withered hands. :)

I moved north to Atlanta, GA, so I am definitely a southern girl! Having grown up in Jacksonville, Florida, I love coastal areas and live oak trees draped in spanish moss. Recently, we had some time to visit a plantation while in Louisiana. I chose Oak Alley Plantation, as it was a very traditional plantation. Several years back, I visited San Francisco Plantation, and while I enjoyed seeing it, the style was different than I think of when I think of a southern plantation. The trees in front of this home sold me and I was pleased with the entire visit.
