Lovely country roads will take you past plantation homes and the historic Locust Grove Cemetery on your way to Audubon State Historic Site. Noted naturalist John James Audubon came to this spot, and stayed at Oakley House Plantation, to tutor the daughter of Oakley’s original owners. Visitors today can tour the plantation and view several original Audubon prints on display there.
Bring hiking shoes for a walk on some of the lovely trails, where you can experience the natural beauty that inspired Audubon’s paintings. Since there are no stores or restaurants along the way, bring some snacks to keep you going until you return to St. Francisville, and always carry lots of water.
