The Hermann-Grima House on St Louis Street, circa 1831, and the Gallier House on Royal Street, circa 1860, are two National Historic Landmarks, accredited museum properties and treasures of the French Quarter. Our non-profit parent organization was established in 1881. Our legacy of preservation is notable and our contribution to the cultural economy significant. We tell of the city’s cultural diversity as we share the stories of all the people who lived at the Hermann-Grima and Gallier Historic Houses – the enslaved individuals who lived and worked there, the Free People of Color who built the house, as well as those who made their fortunes in 19th Century New Orleans and funded the construction of the properties. Our award-winning children’s programs include art, drama, geography, book clubs, archaeology, math and science in our hearth kitchen – in addition to history.
