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.
