The Wanderers: A Meaningful Tour | Oak Alley Plantation: Things to see! | Scoop.it

As we toured the home at Oak Alley in Vacherie, LA, we tried to imagine what the people were like who lived here.

 

As we toured the home, we learned more about the contents of the home than the residents.

We were told there were very few items in the home from the original owners but everything was from the same time period. I thought the rooms were actually very homey feeling....not like a museum at all. Our tour guide was wonderful....but, unfortunately, I can't remember her name. I loved listening to her southern accent! It was like she was telling us a story.... not giving us a history lecture.

Anyway, since it’s been so long since my last post, I figured I’d give you at least a little something. As such, here are some photos of aged structures, abandoned locations, and general roadside oddities from my state of Louisiana. Enjoy. Click on the images for a better full-view look.

HAWAIIAN HOLIDAY AND EASTERN U.S.A.: OAK ALLEY PLANTATION ON THE GREAT RIVER ROAD

HAWAIIAN HOLIDAY AND EASTERN U.S.A.: OAK ALLEY PLANTATION ON THE GREAT RIVER ROAD | Oak Alley Plantation: Things to see! | Scoop.it

Today we drove to Plantation Country and visited Oak Alley Plantation. Beautifully restored from its years of neglect we had an informative tour of the house and strolled around the grounds. The quarter mile alley of 300 year old Virginia Live Oaks is an outstanding sight. Sometime in the early 1700's an unknown settler planted an alley of 28 oaks in two equal rows spaced 80 feet apart leading to the Mississippi river.

I'm in love...I want to live there. I'm not used to being in the city and around people all the time so being at the plantation was like a breath of fresh air.... literally. Everything was starting to bloom and smelled so spring-like.
