This place will take you back in time and allow you to learn more about the life of a famous American artist and naturalist.

Take a trip back in time to this historic site located on the Oakley Plantation. It is open to the public daily from 9 to 5 pm. As you explore, this site will give you a glimpse into the life of John James Audubon. John Audubon was an artist and famous naturalist that stayed here during the summer of 1821. He set out to complete a record of all the bird species found in North America through his painting skills, and this is one of the places where he observed and painted several bird species. The Oakley house offers guided tours every hour from 10 am to 4 pm daily. 

The park located just outside has a lovely nature trail where visitors can bird watch and experience some of the sights and sounds that John Audubon did when he was here. Unlike the plantation, the park is only open Wednesdays through Sundays from 9 am to 5 pm. There is also a required entrance fee as you enter the park. This is a great spot to have a picnic if you visit in the spring or summer months. You will find a covered pavilion that can seat up to 50 people at a time or open picnic areas that can seat more than 100 people at a time.
