Maison Vitry, located in the Treme neighborhood of New Orleans, is a creole mansion built for the free woman of color, Louise Arsene Vitry. Established in 1856, during New Orleans’ golden age, the home is an architectural gem and features 14 foot ceilings, original plaster moldings, mantles, and frescoes, a solid mahogany staircase, cast iron balconies, and marbelized base boards.
