Oak Alley Plantation is located in Vacherie, St. James Parish, Louisiana. It is a historical sugarcane plantation near the West bank of the Mississippi River. It was built is 1837 and sits on 25 acres of land. Sugarcane, also known as “white gold” not only shaped the plantation, but played a huge role in Louisiana’s economy. Slavery exhibits give a glimpse into the lives of the people who built Oak Alley and sustained its grounds for years. Twenty-eight live oak trees, fourteen on each side, create an 800ft. gateway leading straight to the Mississippi River. The trees were planted long before the mansion existed in 1710 by a French Settler. The oaks were already a 120-years-old by the time the existing plantation was built in 1837. It was an honor to visit the plantation with my daughter. We had an awesome time and recommend the Mint Julep! -Rita
