Historic House Tour: Hermann-Grima House

Saturday, Jun 10 3:00 – 4:00 in Hermann-Grima House

Hermann Grima House

Built in 1831, and a National Historic Land­mark, the Hermann-Grima Historic House is an example of Federal style and Creole archi­tec­ture, has an orig­i­nal oper­at­ing open-hearth kitchen, urban slave quar­ters, and expansive courtyard. 

The Urban Enslave­ment Tour at Hermann-Grima House, looks at the expe­ri­ences of those who were enslaved in an urban setting, how that differed from those enslaved in rural settings, and how the contri­bu­tions of people of African descent have shaped New Orleans. 

Condé Nast Trav­eler voted it one of the best tours in New Orleans and the only tour listed from a museum. In addi­tion, the property’s 19th-century carriage house is home to the The Exchange Shop, orig­i­nally founded in the 1881 by The Woman’s Exchange and one of the oldest women-led non-profits in the South.

Join us for a guided tour through the house and learn about it’s history, the furni­ture, and the people who lived there. 

Please note that tickets must be purchased in advance no later than Friday, June 9 and are non-refund­able.
