Hermann-Grima Historic House is a restored French Quarter home built in 1831, includes a Federalist architectural façade, original operating open-hearth kitchen, urban slave quarters, and stunning courtyard. In addition, the property's 19th-century carriage house is home to the The Exchange Shop, originally founded in the 1880's by The Woman's Exchange and important to women's history in New Orleans. 

Built in 1861, by local architect James Gallier, Jr. as his private family residence, the Gallier House, a Victorian French Quarter townhouse, exemplifies architectural features that are not only unique to New Orleans, but also innovative and advanced for the period. Marked by an iconic Paris Green gate, the Royal street home includes an ornate interior décor, running hot and cold water, experimental skylight, and classic courtyard.
