713-715 Governor Nicholls St.

This house is often singled out from other French Quarter buildings for two main reasons: its ironwork, said to be among the finest in the city; and its owner from 1926-1930, the author Sherwood Anderson (or, more precisely, his wife, Elizabeth Prall Anderson). But it has other claims to fame as well. The building was constructed in 1834 by Gabrielle Correjolles and, for a time, the historian and jurist Charles Gayarre made his home there. In 1930, the house was purchased and restored by Sarah Henderson, the force behind the New Orleans Arts and Crafts Club and one of the leaders of the literary and artistic renaissance in New Orleans in the 1930s. The building is a private home today.
