Cane River Creole National Historical Park
Oakland Plantation has 17 of its original outbuildings still remaining. Outbuildings still on the plantation include two pigeonniers, an overseer’s house, massive roofed log corn crib, carriage house, mule barn that was originally a smokehouse, carpenter’s shop, and cabins.
The historic property is a National Bicentennial Farm, only one of two of such Farms west of the Mississippi River, both of which are in Natchitoches Parish. A unit of Cane River Creole National Historical Park, Oakland was acquired by the National Park Service in 1998.
