New Orleans Sights



Elms Mansion Review

Built in 1869, this home saw the Confederate president Jefferson Davis as a frequent guest. The house, which has been meticulously maintained and furnished with period pieces, is the site of many receptions. Group tours are conducted by appointment. Highlights include a carved oak staircase and mantelpiece and 24-karat gilt moldings and sconces.
