Gallier Hall

Gallier Hall Review

This Greek Revival building, modeled on the Erectheum of Athens, was built in 1845 by architect James Gallier Sr. It served as City Hall in the mid-20th century. Today it hosts special events and is the mayor's official perch during Mardi Gras parades, where kings and queens of many parades stop to be toasted by the mayor and dignitaries. The grand rooms inside the hall are adorned with portraits and decorative details ordered by Gallier from Paris. Be sure to call ahead to request an appointment if you'd like to view the building, as it is often in use hosting special events and weddings.
