New Orleans - French Quarter: Hermann-Grima House

The Hermann-Grima House, at 820 St. Louis Street, was built in 1831 by William Brand for Samuel Hermann, a German-Jewish merchant. Hermann lost his fortune in 1837 and had to sell the house to Judge Felix Grima.

 

The faithfully restored Creole-style Federal mansion boasts the only horse stable and functional open hearth kitchen in New Orleans. A museum presents and interprets the lifestyle of a prosperous Creole family from 1830-1860.
