Weekend in New Orleans Part 2

Thursday, August 4, 2016

I blogged about our trip to New Orleans back in April and I forgot to blog about the rest of the trip. Whoops!

We only spent two days in New Orleans, but we packed a lot in! In the afternoon, we toured the Beauregard-Keyes House.
The home was built in 1826, and our tour focused on the two more famous owners: General Beauregard and Frances Keyes.

 
General Beauregard never actually owned 1113 Chartres; however upon his return from the Civil War in late 1865 he, along with his two sons, rented the entire house from Dominique Lanata. His second wife, Caroline Deslonde, passed away while he was away at war and her family mansion on Esplanade Avenue which the two had shared prior to the war was sold at auction by her heirs. 


Frances Keyes lived in the house from 1945-1970. She was an American author who restored the home and gardens.





For dinner we ate at The Chophouse, a gift card was included in our vacation package.
