Helen M. Orcutt of the Tulsa Examiner recently published an outstanding article about Oak Alley Plantation, featuring our newest exhibit "Slavery at Oak Alley."
Ms. Orcutt mentioned several key aspects of the Oak Alley experience that made the visit special for her: our Southern hospitality, beautiful Big House and grounds, and our determination to keep history "alive" for our visitors. She was fascinated about the inclusiveness created by the beautiful antebellum Big House mansion and reconstructed slave quarters, both of which help us tell the complete story of Oak Alley's 300-year-old history.
