The Van Benthuysen-Elms Mansion, a National Historic Landmark, is a beautiful example of Italianate style architecture, providing exquisite grandeur to St. Charles Avenue and the Garden District of New Orleans. The historical Elms Mansion is complemented with period furnishings and surrounded by lovely gardens and patios. The mansion features elegant touches such as an imported mantel of hand-carved marble, ornamental cornices, 24-karat gold sconces, and a 48-foot grand ballroom lined with jeweled windows. Available for Extravagant Cocktail Parties, Seated Dinners, Weddings and Receptions, and Corporate Events. In addition to providing excellent New Orleans cuisine, every visitor receives a tour of the mansion. We also open our home to group tours.
