Construction on the home began in 1859. The owner was bankrupt by the start of the Civil War so construction of the home wasn't completed until 1865. The owners sold the home to the City of New Orleans as a refuge for widows and orphans after the war. During this time, the house was used as an asylum and remained in that capacity for the next 100 years. The house was turned back into a private residence in 1973, and has remained privately owned since. It is Registered as a National Historic Landmark and is a previous winner of the Special Honor Award by the New Orleans HDLC. The home is a great example of an Italianate raised villa.
