Spectacular Neo-Classical House

A spectacular Neo-Classical house in New Orleans’ Garden District.

I was in New Orleans for the Society for Historic Archeology conference in January 2018 and was determined to get out and get photos for the architectural styles examples in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House”

With only a few hours available, I power-walked to and through the French Quarter and Garden District snapping photos of good examples of different styles. Even in that context of amazing houses, this house stood out. I was pleased to get a good photo even though the late afternoon light was not ideal.

Built as an Italianate style house in 1857, it was updated in the Neo-Classical style in 1890.

Neo-Classical is one of 25 historic architectural styles described and illustrated in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.” Understanding the style of a house will help you understand which features are character-defining so you can prioritize their preservation.

The 720 page award-winning and best-selling hardcover book is available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.

Signed and personalized copies can be ordered directly from the author in the shop on this page, https://yourhistorichouse.com/shop/.
