Located on historic Bayou St. John, the Pitot House, c. 1799, is the only Creole colonial style house museum in New Orleans.

One of the most prominent was James Pitot, the first American mayor of New Orleans, who lived at the Pitot House from 1810-1819. The Pitot House is a National Trust for Historic Preservation Partner Place.
