The Hermann-Grima House is a gem in the New Orleans French Quarter. Built in 1831 by Samuel Hermann, this Vieux Carre home is one of the only Federal architectural style buildings in the area. Through ongoing preservation, this historic house museum offers a rare glimpse into life in the 18th century in the French Quarter. This property boasts the only original working open-hearth kitchen in the French Quarter along with an original stable on property. Our hidden courtyard is full of historically accurate roses and other flowering plants too. Learn about the Hermann and Grima families, the enslaved residents, daily urban life, and New Orleans history while on a guided tour, offered six days a week (Thurs-Tues).

There was an outstanding guide (Katherine?) and she provided a fascinating social history of this very rich family. It is also possible to see how the slaves lived in this home of New Orleans' social elite.

This was a pretty cool place to visit. Fairly cheap tour, very thorough and it was a great history lesson. It's located right in the French Quarter so it was easy to get to. I would recommend it.

This is a 19th century home located in the French Quarter. It is very interesting since it has several unique features like a rare remaining stables house. It also has a more “northern” style with a symmetrical exterior and centered front door. It is lovely...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

It's under 16.00 per person (15-something). It's a really good tour and gives you so much historical details about the.e house, the family, the era, and about New Orleans. I highly recommend this one.

Not when I went, but you are free to ask the guide questions. We were the only ones on our tour, so it felt more custom to our individual interests. I'd email them to see if you could focus on her in your tour.
