Pitot House on Bayou St. John, New Orleans

      The home built in 1799 is a great example of a Creole Country Cottage. Located at 1440 Moss Street on Bayou St. John. It was restored in the 1960’s and is open fr tours and events today.

      It got its name from Jame Pitot who was the first Mayor of Incorporated New Orleans.  He was the fourth owner of the home.

      The house has been furnished with Louisiana and American antiques that date from the early 1800s through mid-nineteenth century.  Today, the Louisiana Landmarks Society uses the house as its headquarters, opens it for tours, and rents out the lawn and gardens for special events.

     The gardens are planted with plants that existed in that era of time. Its on my list for a visit.
