Founded in 1718, New Orleans is one of the oldest major American cities. The fabled French Quarter was among the first designated historic neighborhoods and a veritable tapestry of architectural, cultural, and political history. The Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses are two of the most significant cultural landmarks in this iconic neighborhood. Museum membership to these historic sites allows you to become a steward of this important history.

About Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses

The Hermann-Grima House was built in 1831 for Samuel Hermann, a wealthy German-born cotton broker. Mr. Hermann sold the home to Felix Grima, whose family inhabited the house until the 1920s. The Federal-style building is marvelously preserved and gives visitors a window into the world of generations of prominent New Orleans families. The Gallier House was designed by famed Crescent City architect, James Gallier Jr. The fingerprints of his architectural genius adorn many of the most prominent landmarks in town, and his home bears many remarkable engineering innovations.
