Built ca. 1855 by Pierre Saucier,
whose son was later mayor of
Pass Christian, the two-story Greek
Revival House located here had
a central temple-like portico and
square-columned galleries spanning
its facade, and an octagonal Gothic
Revival outbuilding on its grounds. It
was later the home of renowned
New Orleans theatre impresario David
Bidwell. Known locally as "Union
Quarters," the house was destroyed
during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
