East Feliciana and West Feliciana Parishes in Louisiana contain some of the finest examples of antebellum architecture in the country. Before the Civil War, wealthy planters of the region competed with each other to build the most spectacular houses and the most elaborate gardens. Though war and neglect have done their damage, many of the magnificent houses remain, shaded by towering live oak trees and surrounded by broad lawns and lush gardens.
Now, master photographer Paul Malone captures the startling beauty of the old homes of the Felicianas in a series of dazzling color pictures, while Lee Malone tells the fascinating stories of the houses in The Majesty of the Felicianas .
Some 175 beautiful color photographs reveal the marvellous architecture of the buildings, devoting special attention to the restored interiors and elegant furnishings. More than thirty stately homes are presented, including Asphodel, Live Oak, Wildwood, Parlange, and Rosale. This book can be used both as a guide for visitors to the Felicianas, and as a book for connoisseurs of fine architecture.
