Audubon State Historic Site is a state park area located near St. Francisville, Louisiana. It is the location where noted artist John James Audubon spent the Summer of 1821. Visitors come to see the Oakley House, where Audubon lived at the time, and the surrounding plantation grounds. A portion of the 100-acre (0.40 km2) site contains the forest which served as a setting for many of the 32 paintings that Audubon created or instigated while at Oakley.
Build circa 1806, the Oakley house is an example of colonial architecture located on the historic site. Interior rooms have been renovated to the style of the federal period. Audubon spent four months at the house attempting to teach Eliza Pirrie, the daughter of the estate owner, to draw. This is the time that Audubon completed his drawings on the site.
