Gallier House Museum information
Many New Orleans buildings owe their existence, either directly or by design, to James Gallier Sr and Jr, who added Greek-revivalist, British and American accents to the Quarter’s French/Spanish/Creole architectural mélange. In 1857 Gallier Jr began work on this town house, which incorporates all of the above elements. The period furniture is lovely; not so much are the intact slave quarters out back – once you see these, you’ll recognize them throughout the French Quarter.
