Located here was a two-story, French Creole house, with two-tiered galleries. Although construction may have begun prior to the War of 1812, the house was not completed until 1828. Situated on a large plantation, with Sea Island cotton its principal crop, the house was once owned by Jesse Cowand (1786-1852), who fought in the Battle of New Orleans in Beale's Company, Orleans Riflemen. Elmwood Manor was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005.
