Participating Homes in 2024 Faubourg Marigny Home and Garden Tour 

704 Marigny St.

Once a two-story corner creole store-house, this now three-story residence started life in the early 1800s, along with a handsome brick two-story detached kitchen. Recent award-winning renovations created a series of distinct living suites. Architectural features informed the development of custom millwork, finish and fixture selection, and detailing, specific to each suite. Motif enhance the appearance of the building which retains some of its original architectural configurations.

2227 Royal St.

In 1880 this lot was purchased for $575, a large sum at the time. This Italianate style townhouse, very popular in the 1880’s, was built soon after. It features a recessed entrance leading to a stair hall, double parlors to the left and a service wing leading to the rear.

2216 Royal St.

This home is an outstanding example of a Greek revival double shotgun. It was built in the 1840’s, when this style first appeared in New Orleans. Original to the home are the Greek key entrances, dentiled cornices and cast iron gallery railing and fence posts. In 1989 the floor plan was revised and a back kitchen and living room were added.

2318 Royal St.

This late nineteenth century, bayed cottage features a gable with triple windows, a wide variety of shapes and forms on the façade, box columns, and an inviting recessed entrance. An ancient oak in the back enhances the charm of this amazing home.

619 Mandeville St.

Built in 1968 this contemporary addition to the neighborhood is a testimony to the industry and creative spirit of the young owners. In 2021 they took it down to the studs. It became a home with happy colors, spaces evoking different moods, inviting corners and modern conveniences. The tropical yard with cabana and pool can best be seen from upstairs.

2501 Chartres St.

This 1880 home was called “The Original American Bakery” but was referred to officially as “The American Baking Company.” Throughout its 140 years, it has served many iterations, from bakery to “Charlieʼs Barbery Supply,” to residential property. Relics from its past remain today as the brick oven from its bakery days has been repurposed as a koi pond. Living history, in full Technicolor, makes "The Marigny Stoop" one of a kind.

2606 Royal St.

“The House of Sirens” as named by the owner, is a two-and-one-half story gabled, creole townhouse, c. 1836. It is without a hallway, but with stairs at the rear to each level, a true product of creole traditions. The colors throughout are inspired by the owner’s travels to Merida, Mexico. It has original handrails, windows, doors, and cathedral pattern, wrought iron on the balcony. Plus, there is a friendly ghost!

2419A Dauphine St.

This unique residence is not just a home; it's a piece of history, a testament to the city's rich cultural heritage, and a contemporary sanctuary with a touch of vintage charm. Formerly the site of the iconic Hubig's Pie factory, this address now stands as a beacon of modern elegance amidst a backdrop of historical significance. As you step into 2419A Dauphine, you are greeted by an ambiance that seamlessly blends the allure of mid-century design with the unmistakable flair of New Orleans.

Auld Sweet Olive B&B

Sweet Olive Bed & Breakfast, c.1855, was originally owned by a French Creole family. It is a Victorian style home with a grand hallway, double parlours, multiple suites and outdoor living areas. Of particular note are the incredibly special, hand frescoed murals seen throughout, depicting New Orleans at her most southern and tropical.
