An Educational Visit to Prairieville Middle!

Prairieville Middle School recently hosted 'Living Louisiana History,' a full day dedicated to reinforcing Louisiana history with all of their middle schoolers.

Many guest speakers were invited to present various topics to the students, and Oak Alley Plantations's Gary Dauphin was invited to present about the impact of Creole life on Louisiana History.
The students were incredibly polite and asked wonderful questions, as they sat through 30 minute segments about French colonization, the Creoles, Oak Alley's Roman family, sugar cane and slavery, and about Oak Alley Foundation.
One of Oak Alley Foundation's main missions is community education!  If you are interested in a school field trip to Oak Alley, please contact Hillary Loeber.  If you are interested in having Oak Alley present at your school, Please contact Gary Dauphin.
