A visit to NOLA wouldn’t be complete without a visit to historic Oak Alley Plantation
Oak Alley was a sugar cane plantation and this is a bowl they used to make sugar
These oaks are 300 years old!
Dining room. The device above the table is a fan operated by a slave pulling on the rope. The wealthy of New Orleans also used to import ice from Canada (imagine what it would take to get ice delivered from Canada in the 1800s !), it was very expensive.
The owners used oversize silverware to show off their wealth
The only original piece of furniture in the whole mansion is this crib
The main house has no windows, only doors
Here it is, the famous Oak Alley!
I just couldn’t get enough of it!
The kitchen – it used to be outside of the main house
Vintage car garage
Another sugar bowl
