First of all thanks to Amazon for recommending this book to me. Creole architecture is on the very short list of my favorite topics to read about. Happily Une Belle Maison does a most exemplary job of presenting this most favored subject.

Every historic house should have a book written about it like this one. It is thoughtfully written, neither too shallow and brief for the devotee nor too in depth for the novice, beautifully photographed and includes a fascinating array of historic images from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The text places the house and plantation within the historic context of the time period and its location, fully describing the era and the surrounding environs of the Bywater area near New Orleans. The families associated with the construction and subsequent ownerships through the years are discussed as well.

Despite seemingly insurmountable odds the house survived hurricanes, neglect and the decline of its neighborhood, finally being beautifully restored in the last decade or so. Some of the most interesting parts of the book detail the thoughtfully meticulous restoration.

The production quality of the book is high with great paper quality and excellent photograph reproduction thanks to the fine job by the University of Mississippi press.This book comes with the highest recommendation and will greatly appeal to the architecture and history buff as well as those interested in Southern/ New Orleans history.

Go buy it, its great!!

I know Robert Brantley (the photographer) personally and this book is another outstanding example of his work.

I love the Bywater and now I love it even more. The research and photographs are amazing. This was truly an act of love on the part of the author and photographer. I’m re-reading it for the second time, and I’ll probably read it a third time.

There is so much in it. Get it!

Labor of love, Une Belle MaisonS. Frederick Starr has written half-a-dozen books on various aspects of New Orleans culture, music, cuisine and history, so it’s no surprise that Une Belle Maison reads with such an ease of grace and authority.

His conspicuous love for a house he spent two decades restoring makes reading Une Belle Maison a palpable pleasure. From the earliest recorded Spanish real estate transactions through two centuries of various ownerships, Starr traces the fortunes and failures of the Lombard plantation to its present incarnation as an impeccably restored version of its 1825-26 origins.

Une Belle Maison includes dozens of period illustrations and photographs to illustrate how shifting economics, eroding Mississippi river banks and hurricanes affected the fortunes of the vast Bywater plantations.

For an insight into the political, economic, cultural and aesthetic history of this part on New Orleans, Starr’s Une Belle Maison deserves at least five stars.

Profusely illustrated with heretofore unidentified historic photographs and plans, and with color images by master architectural photographer Robert S. Brantley, this book will equally interest inquisitive tourists and long-term residents of the Gulf South, historic preservationists and urbanists in search of insights on successful redevelopment, architecture and history buffs, and enthusiasts of one of America’s most beloved and storied cities.

Described in an 1835 bill of sale as une belle maison, the Lombard plantation house is a rare survivor. Built in the early nineteenth century as a West Indian-style residence, it was the focal point of a large plantation that stretched deep into the cypress swamps of what is now New Orleans’s Bywater neighborhood. Featuring the best Norman trussing in North America, it was one of many plantations homes and grand residences that lined the Mississippi downriver from the French Quarter. A working farm until the 1800s, its lands were eventually absorbed into the expanding city. After years of prosperity, the entire area of the Ninth Ward, now known as Bywater, sank into poverty and neglect.

This is the story of the rise, fall, and eventual resurrection of one of America’s finest extant examples of West Indian Creole architecture and of the entire neighborhood of which it is an anchor. Through meticulous study of archives and archeology, the author presents fascinating insights on how residents of this working plantation actually lived. With concrete evidence, the author covers everything from cooking and cuisine to laundering and gardening. It is a story about buildings but also about people. Because pre-Civil War U.S. censuses never listed more than five enslaved persons, all of whom worked in the house, the plantation appears to have depended mainly on hired labor, both African American and Irish. Eventually these groups came to populate the new neighborhood, along with immigrants from Germany, and then by new migrants from the countryside.

Fred Starr is historian and proud ownerA wonderful–unique–combination!Should be the first book to read for anyone interested in New Orleans architecture.

This book brings together artist John James Audubon; architect of the U.S. capital, Benjamin Henry Latrobe; Lee Harvey Oswald; and Fats Domino in an engrossing story, linking these and other colorful figures to the history of a beautiful, historic home in New Orleans.

Profusely illustrated with heretofore unidentified historic photographs and plans, and with color images by master architectural photographer Robert S.

The Lombard plantation house is a rare survivor. Built in the early nineteenth century as a West Indianstyle residence, it was the focal point of a large plantation that stretched deep into the cypress swamps of what is now New Orleans’s Bywater nieghborhood. Featuring the best Norman trussing in North America, it was one of many plantation homes and grand residences that lined the Mississippi downriver from the French Quarter. A working farm until the 1800s, its lands were eventually absorbed into the expanding city. After years of prosperity, the entire area of the Ninth Ward, now known as Bywater, sank into poverty and neglect.

This is the fascinating story of a house that has survived hurricanes and real estate bubbles and still stands proudly on the banks of the Mississippi, while all else around it has changed. Though the Beautiful House isn’t open to the public, we made it a point to go by and see it over the fence when we were last in New Orleans, and it was a treat! The neighborhood of Bywater, that has grown up around it and on the plantation lands that used to support it is no longer a seedy place but has gentrified into quite an artistic and bohemian neighborhood, and it’s Queen is THIS Belle Maison.
