The principal house of a plantation in antebellum American South typically had two stories with very tall windows with a veranda across the entire front facade supported by two-story columns.

Oak Alley Plantation is located on the west bank of the Mississippi River in Vacherie, St. James Parish, Louisiana.

At one time or another have been in most of the ones in Louisiana and Mississippi. Two other very nice survivors Nottoway and San Fransisco house.

San Fransisco is a miss understanding of the owners complaint that his wife was spending so much money on the house he was going broke. Sans fruscins or “without a penny in my pocket.”

In today's world of erasing and rewriting the past all of these are targets. All old and made of wood. Just like the monuments are the current target it only takes one going down making nation wide news before a new flame races across the south.

If you have the chance now would be the time to see them.
