Enter an opulent era at Gallier Historic House and marvel at the Victorian furnishings and decor within this architectural gem. Completed in 1860, Gallier House was designed by famed Crescent City architect, James Gallier, Jr. As a family home, Gallier House showcases several engineering innovations, such as indoor plumbing with hot and cold running water and a double skylight. Using the original household inventory as a guide, period decorative arts reflect the Galliers’ refined taste. 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.
