“Age and Dignity”
Review of Evangeline Oak

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2013

There are few opportunities to visit a living organism documented to be over 500 years old. This spectacular tree is an amazing example of the beauty and dignity of Louisiana's live oaks, the glory of the state. This is one of the best.

Nice little monument about Longfellow's poem, etc. by the river...there is a little walkway along the bank - short and sweet.

This is a beautiful oak tree that has inspired some beautiful poetry. There is also a peaceful little park. But that is really all there is to see.

I love this tree and peaceful little park. Take some time and stroll around st. Martinville, just to take in the lovely historical ambiance. Be sure and visit the Catholic Church too. The Cajun culture is alive and well here.

If you're into history, this tree is perhaps the most historic tree around. There's a plaque that tells of the story of Evangeline. It's right behind the church and near the bayou side. It is about as historic as a tree can be. If you've just visited the church, it's worth the short walk to check out this lovely oak.
