Today marks 107 years since Andrew and Josephine Stewart were married. It was nineteen years after their wedding that they were taking a river cruise along the Mississippi and spotted the beautiful, but dilapidated, Oak Alley Plantation. A few months later, Mr and Mrs Stewart purchased the plantation and began what became their life’s work, restoring the property and its grounds to its former glory and opening the home to the public. Without the hard work and dedication of the Stewarts, we wouldn’t have this beautiful historic jewel of Southeastern Louisiana, nor would we have the wonderful Oak Alley Foundation to continue maintaining and restoring the property. Oak Alley Plantation is featured on our Oak Alley and Laura Plantation Tour, so come and visit for yourself!
