Built in 1831, HERMANN-GRIMA HOUSE is one of the most significant residences in the French Quarter. This handsome Federal mansion with its courtyard garden boasts the only horse stable and functional outdoor kitchen in the Quarter.

Painstakingly restored to its original splendor through archaeological studies and careful review of the building contract and inventories, the museum complex accurately depicts the gracious lifestyle of a prosperous creole family in the years from 1830 to 1860.
