A leading authority on historic preservation in the French Quarter, the museums of Hermann-Grima and Gallier Historic Houses, offer entertaining and interactive programming designed to stimulate the curiosity in the history of this great city of New Orleans.
From major restoration projects to small repairs that go unnoticed, from multi-session archeology programs to churning butter with elementary school students, contributions from the community ensure that our doors remain open to an ever growing audience.
Historic Houses Society
From the original owners to the enslaved workers who lived on the properties, to the Free People of Color who conducted business with the houses, we offer a complete picture of the diverse lifestyles that converged in New Orleans during the 1800s.
