About Oak Alley Plantation


It was named the Oak Alley Plantation for the canopied path of double row oak trees that were planted in the early 18th century before the main house was built. The house was built in 1837 and was first established to grow sugarcane by Valcour Aime who was known as one of the richest men in the Southern states and went by the 'King of Sugar.' Aime ended up exchanging the property with his brother-in-law, named Jacques Roman who, in 1836 began building the mansion the following year. The grounds contain a garden, old car garage, blacksmith shop, and the Stewart graveyard. The house underwent major restoration in the 1920s by the new owners Andrew and Josephine Stewart. The buildings had gone into major disrepair and they restored and preserved the beautiful mansion as it is today.
