  • The Mamie S. Barrett steamer was built in 1921 and secured its spot in history when President Franklin D. Roosevelt used it as his headquarters while he toured & inspected the Mississippi River in 1942.
.
The boat was used in various capacities until being towed to its final resting spot along the banks of the Mississippi River in the 1990's
.
These photos are from my visit in February 2017. In late May, the river waters rose and the Mamie S. Barrett went afloat into power lines, causing it to catch on fire. It was completely destroyed.

  • This mysterious Italianate mansion, tucked away in Esplanade Ridge was built in 1865 for German cotton merchant, Florence Luling.  Luling Mansion, now in stages of decay, was designed by James Gallier Jr. after two years of construction. Shortly after Luling and his family moved in, both of Luling’s sons drowned in the Bayou. Later, the Civil War devastated Luling’s cotton empire and he sold the mansion to The Louisiana Jockey Club and he returned to Europe. The mansion became the headquarters where extravagant cocktail parties and eccentric masquerade balls were held (can you imagine.) in 1905 the mansion was left by The Jockey Club and was turned into private apartments and the 30 acre grounds divided into new streets and small family homes. It seems that sometime before 1950, the two matching wings were demolished. In 2015, two of these apartments came up for rent, with average price of $1,000 per month. 
Currently, the mansion is in a subtle state of disrepair.
It is located on Leda Street near the Fairgrounds, so if you’re taking a stroll after Jazz Fest, check it out!
