One of my favorite restored houses. It includes original furniture donated from the Beauregard family. Portraits line the walls of the Dining hall showing the same piece of jewelry worn differently by each generation of Beauregard women.

We were looking for something to do in the afternoon and came upon the Beauregard-Keyes House. You can only get in on the hour, so go over right before you want to tour. We had a rather large group and our docent handled everyone beautifully....More

The Beauregard-Keyes House is significant and worth a tour because of its Greek Revival architecture and once was the residence of Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard and American author Frances Parkinson Keyes. It also was owned by a local grocer named Dominique Lanata, who...More

General Beauregard rented the house for about 18 months. Mrs. Keyes was a prolific author and some of the furnishings are hers. There were other owners and tenants, all with interesting stories.

We visited this house in 2017 and enjoyed thinking about ol’ General Beauregard. He had a room at the back. The high ceilings must have kept the place cool in summer. Some original or at least appropriate furniture is there, including a very interesting piano....More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

I think it must. They only let you into the house at certain limited times, and then the door is locked and everyone inside goes on the tour. You can't just wander around by yourself.
