Beautiful home with great engaging guides. Always see lots of wildlife here which is appropriate since John Audubon painted many of his Birds of America at this site.

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.
