Beauregard-Keyes House Review
The Confederate general and Louisiana native P.G.T. Beauregard briefly made his home at this stately 19th-century mansion. A more long-term resident, however, was the novelist Frances Parkinson Keyes, who found the place in a sad state when she arrived in the 1940s. Keyes restored the home, today filled with period furnishings. Her studio at the back of the large courtyard remains intact, complete with family photos, original manuscripts, and her doll, fan, and teapot collections. Keyes wrote 40 novels there, all in longhand, among them the local favorite Dinner at Antoine's. Even if you don't have time to tour the house, take a peek through the gates at the beautiful walled garden at the corner of Chartres and Ursulines streets. Landscaped in the same sun pattern as Jackson Square, it blooms throughout the year.
