An Avenue Of Oaks

An Avenue Of Oaks

During the height of the plantation wealth it was important to show it off. One way was to have the entrance road to be lined with large moss covered Live Oaks. Hollywood always uses the idea in any film depicting old southern life.

Below I took this shot standing in the avenue facing the grand house.

Note; there’s another part of showing off their wealth that Hollywood has left out of the plantation shots. Behind the line of Oaks there can be lines of old shacks, also for people to see when they rode up to the main house.

The shacks were homes for the enslaved kept on the plantation.
