Inscription
Built in the 1830s, the French Creole house once located here incorporated Federal and Greek Revival decorative influences tn its design. The gallery completely encircled the house, and its
slender, colonnettes supported a broad hipped roof with flared eaves. Used as a summer residence by several New Orleans families for many years, the house was moved to this location to prevent its demolition during construction of I-110 but was completely destroyed by Hurricane Katrina tn 2005.
