When the Stewarts purchased the property in 1925, it was to be their home, a mere cattle ranch where Josephine could tend to her gardens adjacent to the antebellum mansion and ride horses through the vast acres of this historic plantation.  But during her time living at the plantation, she saw a greater purpose for the plantation when it was no longer her home.  So in 1969, Josephine, with the assistance of her nephew, Zeb Mayhew, Sr., established a nonprofit foundation that would encompass the antebellum Big House and the immediate 25 historic acres,  Oak Alley Plantation. The mission of the Foundation is to allow visitors from around the world to learn them history of the working sugarcane plantation and those who once resided here and to educate the public generally on a bygone era.
