Inside the Hermann-Grima House and in the adjacent slave quarters, you will be transported through history to learn about this bustling 19th-century home, outbuildings, and courtyard. Through the efforts of The Woman’s Exchange, this house was painstakingly preserved and restored. The parlors, bedrooms, and outdoor workspaces are completely furnished in period pieces.
In fact, more than one-third of the objects you will find on display belonged to either the Hermanns or the Grimas. From family portraits and kitchen equipment to Mrs. Hermann’s tea set and the historically accurate carpets and upholstery, old New Orleans comes to life at the Hermann-Grima House.
