My Aunt and Uncle started renovating there new home, Monte Vista Plantation in Port Allen. I decided one day to perch on the levee overlooking the house and sketch this beautiful structure. A little history behind the plantation. If was built in the late 1850's by Louis De Favrot to house soldiers during battles. Many people have enjoyed residing in the house. It has a couple of outer structures I would like to capture, including a cottage house. The Architectural Style is Greek Revival. I plan to add foliage next time I visit and I will update the picture.
