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!
Plaster Medallion and Chandelier in the Parlor of the Historic BK House in New Orleans’ French Quarter. The Historic BK House was built in the 1820s and had its famous portico added to the facade a decade later. It was home to three wealthy families before entering an extended period of mixed uses after the Civil War. In the 1940s, it was rented by the best-selling author Frances Parkinson Keyes, who bought and restored the house in the 1950s. It remained her winter home until her death in the 1970s and has been open to the public since. In recent years, significant work has been done to stabilize and restore the exterior to its 1830s appearance, preparing the house for the next century of use. In addition to being a museum house, it is available for event rentals and is a popular venue for weddings. https://www.bkhouse.org/ All aspects of restoration are covered in “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
