When touring St. Francisville you must stop in and take a tour of the Oakley Plantation. It is not too far from downtown St. Francisville and well worth your time. You can learn a little about Audubon's time in St. Francisville.

This historic site is focused on the time Audubon stayed at the plantation. It is very informative with a different focus than most plantation tours. Has many nice Audubon prints on display

This was an interesting historical location with some stories pertaining to Audubon, the artist. The location has been kept, as much as possible, as it would have been when he was there for 3 months. It is an educational place to visit.

The home is restored to 1821 furnishings with many original artifacts. The 20-minute guided tour outlines the history of the home and the area with colorful anecdotes. A very pleasant stop for Saint Francisville visitors.
