NOLA’s W.P. Brown Mansion Puzzle

The best way to learn about historic houses is to look at them closely, and the most fun way to look at them closely is to do a puzzle showing a wonderful historic house! So, we made a unique and interesting collection of Historic House Puzzles for you to enjoy!

NOLA’s W.P. Brown Mansion

Businessman William P. Brown and his partners cornered the global cotton market in the first years of the 1900s, making Brown one of the wealthiest men in the South. He was known as The Cotton King of New Orleans. Brown reportedly promised his wife, Marguerite, that he would build the most palatial home New Orleans had ever seen.

The Richardsonian Romanesque style house designed by the local architectural firm Favrot and Livaudais is faced with warm-hued beige limestone and has a red tile roof. It was built on St. Charles Ave. between 1901 and 1904. Louisiana-born Boston architect Henry Hobson Richardson developed his Victorian-era revival of the Romanesque architecture of southern France, Spain and Italy in the 1870s. Many interior photos can be found here.

Romanesque Revival is one of 25 styles and types described and illustrated with hundreds of color photos in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
