Visitor Tips and News About Creepy Oak and Pine Alley
The marker is back! Lovely old tree-lined lane. You can't miss it. Yes! You would have to be brave to enter on Halloween! Plaque on entrance tree as well.[Mavis & Jeff, 04/06/2013]
A road out in the middle of St Martin Parish - there are sugar cane fields all around and then this oak-lined road pops up. Very thickly planted and old oaks line the entire road 1/2 mile or so.
As the story goes, wealthy plantation owner planted this row of trees. The historical marker notes he had a carriage for his daughter's wedding canopied with spider webs - and then dusted with silver and gold dust.
Awesome road to go down at night in the fall....maybe Halloween.[Matt Stone, 06/03/2010]
We hope that by then the historical marker will have returned. It was stolen only a month after we received this tip!
