AUDUBON STATE HISTORIC SITE PRESENTS

LIFE IN A SLAVE CABIN

 Those wishing for a look into Louisiana's history need only to go to
Audubon State Historic Site to experience Life in a Slave Cabin on
Saturday, May 5. At 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. tours are offered through the historic slave cabins of the plantation. There they will see how slaves lived, hear stories of their struggles and accomplishments, then compare life, later, in a sharecroppers cabin.
"Every day, and with every visit, we want the visitor to the park not to just have a visit but an experience." says John House, site manager.

  Audubon SHS is the setting for the 200-year-old Oakley House, temporary home and inspiration to John James Audubon in the 1800s. The park includes a museum, picnic areas, Historic buildings, pavilion, and nature trail. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in
1973, Oakley House and its lush natural settings are open daily from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m., except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day.

  The $4 adult admission to Audubon SHS includes the site video history
presentation, the plantation house tour and all special programs.
Children (12 and under) and senior citizens (62 and older) are admitted
free.  Audubon SHS is located 30 minutes north of Baton Rouge near St.
Francisville on La. 965 in West Feliciana Parish.  For more information,
