Oak alley plantation tour in New Orleans
Bon Sejour. That’s the original name of the Oak Alley Plantation. Enter New Orleans’ French Quarter that houses this magnificent orchard. An early 19th-century estate of tragic history. Once a sugarcane plantation of oppression, sweat, and tears. Now a walk through civil rights history. Visit the bending tree formations that shelter the plantation. Venture deep into the punishing stories that took place on the field. Hear the harsh realities of life as an 18th-century African American. And the pretentious social gatherings of the owners in the Big House. A contrast between hardship and riches. This hard-boiled historic tour will open your eyes to another side of American history.
