  • Oakley House Plantation

    This is the smallest plantation house I visited, intimate and "lived in." Its main claim to fame is that naturalist John James Audubon was employed here as a tutor and painted 32 of his famous bird paintings before being fired for padding his hours. It is a very pleasant visit - not "processed" at all - with a beautiful nature trail.

  • Rosedown Plantation

    This plantation has everything you could ask for: an oak lined alley, a dysfunctional original family, and gorgeous grounds. Photography is allowed inside and out. An unusual detail is the doctor's office. The visit here is less tightly structured than in the plantations near New Orleans.

  • Clark Creek Natural Area

    This forest is actually in Mississippi, not in Louisiana, but it is not far from St Francisville.This large natural reserve with seasonal waterfalls is a great hiking resource if you like steep terrain. Some trails are well maintained, others more primitive (and the difference is well marked on the maps). From Highway 61, take a left on Miss....

    The Angola penitentiary stands on the grounds of an old plantation and was notorious for brutality from the time of its foundation in 1880 (in former slave quarters) until the 1970s. Today, a small museum stands next to the penitentiary's entrance. Angola itself is a short drive away from St Francisville, in an isolated part of the State.
