“Unknown jem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

This property sits in the middle of the French Quarter, hidden by most eyes.....we took the last tour of the day with Lexie. She was exteremely knowledgeable about the history of the property and New Orleans The tour was small and deeply informative. In addition, to the house, slave quarters and courtyard we shopped at the Woman's Exchange consignment store with great locat art pieces.

“Glimpse into 19th century New Orleans life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

The one hour tours of this historic house provide insight into the life of a wealthy creole family during the antebellum period. Our guide was knowledgable and provided interesting and educational insights.

Some might think the $12 admission is a bit steep but if old houses are your thing, it is worthwhile. I recall they cut $2 for AAA members.

The house is conveniently located a half block from Bourbon Street.

“Surprising”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

If you've ever wondered how some of the homes and their courtyards look in the Quarter while wondering how life in early, affluent 19th Century New Orleans was look no further. The guide was amazingly informative and the home was resplendent. I've been to New Orleans countless times and never knew this home (right off Bourbon Street) existed. A great find well worth the time.

“Do stop by and take the tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Loved this house and our tour guy was wonderful. He knew so much about not only the house but the former residents. Also gave us some background on the historical architecture of New Orleans. Loved the upstairs bedroom with the blue wallpaper and the other bedroom set up as it was during the 40's. The house has a long interesting history. We visited on a Thursday and got to see the cooking demostration. Very educational and smelled great unfortunately you can not taste the finished dishes.

“I love hands on history...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Lindsay O'Connor was our tour guide. Besides being very sweet & professional. Lindsay was educational. Lindsay helped me step back in time painting a visual of the history, customs & day to day life. I loved gaining the perspective of life in the French Quarter. I would love to visit the other house when back in New Orleans. A must do!!
