"Oak Alley (and Laura)" Vacherie by grandmaR

Vacherie Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 60 photos

Vacherie is located in St. James Parish within the Plantation Country Region west of New Orleans between Donaldsonville and Luling along Highway 18 on the banks of the Mississippi River near Lac de Allemands.

Vacherie is part of the New Orleans, Louisiana metro area.

Tbere are three major plantations here - Oak Alley (pictured above and in the travelogues), Evergreen and Laura.

Laura is a Creole Plantation kind of next door on The Great River Road to Oak Alley, and built earlier (1805) and restored to same period.

NOTE: A fire destroyed much of the main house in 2004, however the plantation is still on tours, which take in the out buildings and the story of the rebuilding process

Also note: Oak Alley is not original inside of the building. It has reproductions rather than the original furnishings.
