Summary

Significance: The significance of this residential structure lies not only in the fact that it is one of the older houses in the Vieux Carre, but also in the existence of a distinctive entresol floor. The entresol is an intermediate floor which is lighted at floor level by the fan lights of the arched opening of the ground floor below. This feature, in addition to the spacious ground floor which is divided transversely by two arched brick openings, clearly defines the commercial character of the lower floors.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-45
