Briggs-Staub House Review
The only Gothic Revival house in the district was built in 1849. Garden District Americans shunned the Gothic Revival style as linked to Creole-Catholic tradition, but Londoner Charles Briggs ignored decorum and had James Gallier Sr. design this anomaly, touted as a "Gothic cottage." The interior departs from a strict Gothic breakup of rooms to make it better suited for entertaining.
