Audubon State Historic Site

Audubon State Historic Site features Oakley House, a plantation home where the famous naturalist John James Audubon once worked as a tutor. The rooms have been restored in the style of the late Federal Period (1790-1830), reflecting their appearance when Audubon stayed there. Visitors may take part in African American-influenced cooking demonstrations in the historic kitchen and visit 2 slave cabins for a fuller picture of life during this period.

This lush natural setting, with a variety of birds singing throughout the 100-acre forest, still inspires visitors. Audubon completed or began 32 bird paintings while at Oakley for 4 months.
