New Orleans Historic Homes (Hardcover)
Just as residents of New Orleans have long held a reputation as individuals who are vibrant and full of life, so has the city's architecture been revered for its intimate detail and grandeur. From the popular buildings of the French Quarter to the lesser-known gems of the Bywater, the Crescent City is filled with exquisite historical structures that families have lovingly tended and proudly called home for centuries.
In this series of profiles, the residents of New Orleans's notable homes invite readers inside. Dazzling photographs of the interiors and exteriors of the dwellings reveal the most stunning abodes of the city. While the owners have undertaken renovations to include modern amenities, the spirit of the past has not merely been preserved-it has been embraced. Brief profiles of famous inhabitants and fascinating architectural and historical details of these celebrated dwellings complement the gorgeous photographs.
