Oakland is 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. This historic property is a National Bicentennial Farm, only one of two of such Farms west of the Mississippi River, and a unit of Cane River Creole National Historical Park. Oakland was acquired by the National Park Service in 1998. The first cotton in the state was planted here.
