Side Trips from New Orleans Sights


Madewood Review

This galleried, 21-room Greek Revival mansion with massive white columns was designed by architect Henry Howard and completed in 1854. The house has an enormous freestanding staircase and 25-foot-high ceilings, and is best experienced with an overnight stay in the bed-and-breakfast. Guests can arrange a tour with the owners; call for appointments. Bayou Lafourche is across the road.
