Tour Madame John's Legacy and step back in time to Creole New Orleans in the late 18th Century. Built in 1788, Madame John's is a showcase of  "green design"  in a subtropical climate and features broad shaded galleries, well-ventilated rooms, and a cooling cellar. Currently on view: "The Palm, the Pine, and the Cypress: Newcomb Pottery of New Orleans."
