This house tour was mostly about the life of author Francis Parkinson Keyes, who bought the house and lived here in the mid-1950s. Her doll collection and collection of veilleuses are on display as well as pictures of famous people who visited her. The furnishings in the house belonged to Ms. Keyes, and she restored the garden which is included... More

This was a very nice tour and we have been back a couple of times with friends to show them that NOLA has so much more to offer than just Bourbon Street!

An amazing story of resurrection of this old house by my favorite author. The entire home is a treasure and the people of New Orleans owe it all to FPK and the ladies of NOLA!

Haven't toured the house, per se... but we did get married in the garden, and it was PERFECT! The staff made everything so stress-free and pleasant, and it was extremely affordable.

Great historical house must see if your in the French quarter. Our guide (she's a cute redhead) was very knowledgable and funny. Tip them they work hard everyday! Wish more of the house was restored but I guess they need more visitors to raise the money so support them! Also across the street was a beautiful convent must see also.

Lovely old home on Bourbon Street that is historically preserved. The furnishings are exquisite in elegance and the location across from the Ursaline convent and church is convenient if walking around the French Quarter. The tour is nice and the front porch is beautiful. Nice place to sit down relax in the summer heat!

Our guide let us in early, as it was so hot, the heat index was over 110!! We were so thankful he did. Our little group of 4 enjoyed the awesomeness that is Beauregard-Keyes House. The best part is, in the end of the tour to learn that Mrs. Keyes moved to the slave quarters, how amazing that was to... More
