“an architectural gem of New Orleans”

The original two story Antebellum home was built in the 1850’s by George Washington Squires. In 1884 the home was lifted by William Renaud, who added a magnificent first floor especially designed for family weddings and parties. The house is an outstanding example of high Victorian architecture and woodwork with a center hall that showcases an original mirror embellished with an intricate border of tobacco leaves. The Mystic ballroom features ornate chandeliers and original black marble fireplaces and is still the site of many lavish weddings and parties. Upstairs, one can view not only the fabulous antiques that Ms. Broel has collected over the years. The collection includes a desk made for the Duke of Dresden in 1800, a piece of linen from Egypt that is over 2000 years old, a chandelier with hand-blown grapes cascading from its arms, and the display of Dr. Broel’s frog farm. The house of Broel is open for tours Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m to 3:00 p.m at a cost of $15 for adults and $10 for children. Walk-ins are accepted.
