Located on Hwy 965 about 3 miles east off of hwy 61, Oakley is the plantation home that John James Audubon spent 4 months living and painting some 32 of his famous local birds. Built circa 1806, Oakley predates the relatively heavy details of the classic revival in Southern plantation homes and claims distinction for its beautiful simplicity. Oakley is an Audubon State Historic site of Louisiana.
