Tel: (504) 723-7714


The Anglo-Creole style home built in the mid-1800s on Mandeville's lakefront by tobacco merchant Jean Baptiste Lang survived the Civil War before Hurricane Katrina nearly destroyed it in 2005. Preservationists moved the home inland and restored it to display original architectural elements. Open Thursday and Friday, 10am-4pm and Saturday, 10am-1pm for tours and Old Mandeville Historic Site Plaque book sales. Be sure to visit the gift shop and resource library.
