You may recognize this sprawling estate and its imposing live oaks as the location used for Louis's abode in the movie adaptation of Anne Rice's Interview with The Vampire
. Jacques Telesphore Roman built the Greek Revival house in 1837. The ghost stories abound at Oak Alley: phantom figures in windows (perhaps the last resident, Josephine Stewart), staff members being touched when no one is near, unexplained lights in empty rooms, and sounds of a horse drawn carriage driving up plantation gravel roads. Give ghost hunting a try for yourself during a tour or overnight stay
in the plantation cottages.
