Built in 1831 by Samuel Hermann, the home is one of the earliest and best examples of American architecture in the historic French Quarter. Prior to the Civil War, prosperous Creole families enjoyed an elegant lifestyle. This Federal mansion boasts the only horse stable and functional 1830s outdoor Creole kitchen in the French Quarter. The parlor and center hall were decorated and furnished by the Louisiana Society.
