Enter a bygone era at the Gallier House and marvel at the Victorian decorations and furnishings set within this architectural gem.  Completed in 1859, The Gallier House was designed by famed Crescent City architect, James Gallier Jr. The fingerprints of his architectural genius adorn many of the most prominent landmarks in New Orleans, and his home bears many remarkable engineering innovations. Using the household inventory created after the death of James Gallier Jr. in 1868, period decorative arts have been acquired to reflect the Galliers’ refined taste. Portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Gallier overlook the Rococo Revival double parlor while upstairs authentic toys and games hold prominence in the children’s bedroom. The kitchen and bathroom featured hot and cold running water, a rare luxury in the mid-19th century. This comfortable lifestyle was made possible through the work of enslaved people, and later domestic servants, whose work and lives are also interpreted on tours of the Gallier House.
