Built by Virginian cotton broker, James W. Roper in 1833, Oakleigh is a remarkable example of historic preservation, as it has been adapted and preserved by the four families who lived here. As one of the first major residences to be built outside of the city limits, historians cite Oakleigh as one of the rarest examples of Greek revival architecture in the United States. And our tour is just as distinct- come experience it today.

Maybe with a better tour guide, I would have rated this historic attraction higher. Hopefully these type places are aware that the personality and presentation of the tour guides can make or break the tourist's perception of the attraction! We were the only ones in...More

I loved my visit here. My tour guide, Melanie, was so informative and friendly. I absolutely adored her. I think we had some belles (?) in training on our tour and it was refreshing to see young girls so excited to learn and at times...More

It's architecturally grand and very nicely kept. The historic decor and furnishings let you glimpse the past as you tour the home. The guide was rushed and was talking too fast, but she did know a lot about the former families who have lived there....More

The tour for this house was very interesting and the property was so quiet and peaceful. It is in a quaint residential neighborhood that we would love to live in. The price of the tour was extremely reasonable.
