The Grevemberg House Museum in Franklin City?s Park has served as a residence to large families and as a recreation hall and location for community dances. However, it was demolished after several years due to neglect.

The antebellum house was repaired following the formation of the St. Mary Chapter/Louisiana Landmarks Society, a group of citizens that focuses on the historic buildings of Louisiana. After a few years, the Landmarks Society requested the City to have the structure repaired. A proposal was also made for the house to be operated as a museum.

After a restoration process, the Grevemberg House Museum formally opened in 1972. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Today, the museum still stands even after a threat from a fire disaster in 1983.
