Live Oaks Historic Home

Facing Bayou Grosse Tete, it’s an impressive example of early Louisiana architecture.


Facing Bayou Grosse Tete, Live Oaks was built by slave artisans who hauled cypress from the swamps and made brick from clay soil found in the area.  Built in 1826 by Charles Dickinson, it features six columns supporting wonderful galleries on both the first and second floors. The view from the second floor gallery of the majestic oaks, which shelter the home, must be quite impressive. In fact, one of the oaks is the fifth largest live oak tree in the country. One of the most outstanding architectural features of the home is the winding stairway leading from the 20-feet-wide hall to the second floor. *The house is privately owned, and is not open to the public. It can be viewed from the road.
