Considered as one of the most popular structures in the French Quarters area of New Orleans, the Gallier House is regularly visited by those wishing to get a glimpse of its beautiful architecture. The whole house was designed by notable American architect James Gallier in 1860. The building served as the architect?s home for his entire life. Another notable work by Gallier is the French Opera House, also in the same area.
The house now stands as a museum dedicated to Gallier?s life and works. The house has since been restored to its former condition during the 19th century. Here visitors can get to see photographs of Gallier?s other works, as well as his original plans. The place itself also serves as a fine example of his artistic style.
