AUDUBON STATE HISTORIC SITE – OAKLEY PLANTATION
Create your own experience in living history during The World of Jane Austen at Audubon State Historic Site on Saturday February 17th from 10AM until 4 PM.
The popular English writer Jane Austen lived in a time of much upheaval. It was a time of the Napoleon and war covered every part of the globe. In the United States the capital was burned and New Orleans saved in a famous battle. Austen’s world was a world of gentility set against the backdrop of violence of war which reflected the early 1800’s in Louisiana.
In Oakley House instead of tours there will be hands on demonstrations of period dancing, etiquette, bath salts, use of the fan, clothing, and more. On the grounds volunteers in reproduction uniforms and clothing of the War of 1812 will host activities that include cannon firing drills, black powder musket drills, and camp life talks.
