First Ursuline Convent and Charity Hospital

Jean-Daniel Kolly, banking councillor to the Elector of Bavaria and large investor in the Company of the Indies, had a townhouse built on this site shortly after the founding of New Orleans in 1718. The Sainte-Reyne, concession upriver, controlled by Kolly, leased the residence for use as a provisional convent by the Ursuline nuns. After arriving at the port from the balize by piroque on August 6, 1727, the religious established themselves and remained here until July 17, 1734. The building was later used for the first charity hospital, established by gift of Jean Louis, former sailor for the Company of the Indies.Archdiocese Bicentennial Commission
