We had a Garden Club outing to the B-K house. Our group was about 30. We called ahead of time to give them a heads up. They were so nice they closed the place to outside tourists for the hour we were going to be...More

This beautiful mansion, across the street from the old Ursuline Convent in the French Quarter, was once the temporary home of the famous confederate and Creole General Pierre "Touton" Beauregard and to later Italian mafiosa before being discovered and restored by American novelist Frances Parkinson-Keyes...More

This is a bit of a "hidden gem, oddball tour". It's very much about the former owner, Mrs. Keyes, who was famous in her time, but our tour guide (who was a character himself) made it very interesting even though I wasn't familiar with Mrs....More

We had a good tour guide at end of day. Interesting house. Tour lasts an hour. Cost is $10 a person. Is the house really special? No not really, but something to do in an afternoon. Mrs. Keyes was a writer and wrote a sort...More

We have seen this house twice with two different guides Ott and Rosanna. Both were extremely well informed and interesting. Their kindness and enthusiasm however makes this a totally not to miss experience. Spending an hour and a half here was a trip highlight.

We had the most excellent tour guide--a gentleman from Mississippi named Ott(?). He knew the entire history of the estate and was able to give us great restaurant recommendations. We highly recommend going to see this, particularly if you are into history! While you're at...More

Some antebellum houses are listed as National Landmarks and others aren't. Why? It depends on the architecture and the history of the property. Did somebody named Lee or Washington live there? Or was it Smith or Jones? The Beauregard-Keyes House at 1113 Chartres Street in...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

I think it must. They only let you into the house at certain limited times, and then the door is locked and everyone inside goes on the tour. You can't just wander around by yourself.
