Places to visit in Вачери. Languages: en

The main house of the Oak Alley Plantation features a striking gallery with columns that spans the entire length of the front facade. The gallery is supported by 28 evenly spaced Doric columns made of solid brick and plastered with stucco. These columns are topped with white wooden capitals and a matching fence with a basic Greek design.

The gallery offers breathtaking views of the lush gardens and oak alley. It is a perfect spot for relaxation and socializing. It is easy to imagine the Roman family and their guests spending hours in this gallery, sipping on mint juleps and enjoying the Southern breeze.

The gallery played an essential role in the daily life of the plantation. Enslaved people would use it to perform various tasks such as cleaning, sweeping, and other maintenance duties. It was also a place where the enslaved would gather and wait for the Roman family's instructions or be called for work.

The gallery columns are beautiful and symbolize the grandeur and elegance of the antebellum South. Today, the gallery continues to be a significant feature of the Oak Alley Plantation. It attracts visitors from all over the world who come to admire its beauty and historical significance.
