Authors Note: Please know that I am aware that this a plantation where the terrible act of slavery took place. I do plan on doing a post solely dedicated to the scourge of slavery on a later date.
One of the most popular plantations to visit in Louisiana is Oak Alley. Sadly, they would not allow us to take photos inside the house. Oak Alley is one of the places where they filmed the hit movie Interview with the Vampire based on the popular Anne Rice novel.
They had just finished a preservation project a few months before inside. I wish I had the photos to show what they had. While taking the tour we learned of the Roman family who had built Oak Alley and what became of their family following the Civil War. Soon after the Stewart family took hold of the property and started working on the Oak Alley Foundation in order to preserve history. Stay safe and well!
