Mission Statement

The mission of the Hermann-Grima and Gallier Historic Houses is to preserve, maintain, and complete the restoration of both of the house museums, to interpret their place in and contribution to the culture of New Orleans, and to educate visitors about the history of New Orleans and its population in the period from 1830 to 1880.

Description

Built in 1831, with its courtyard garden and the only horse stable and functional outdoor kitchen in the French Quarter, the Hermann-Grima House accurately depicts the lifestyle of a prosperous Creole family in the years from 1830 to 1860. In 1857, the esteemed New Orleans architect, James Gallier, Jr., designed a residence for his own family. Through archaeological studies and thorough review of the building contract and inventories, the Gallier House, including carefully restored slave quarters, portrays life in New Orleans from 1860 to 1880.
