Here is a photo of the front door and very heavy custom designed grill to protect the residence
Here is a photo of the front parlor with dust covers which were used while the family was away. Notice the very heavy plaster crown molding.
Here is a photo of the dining room table. The table was set for a multi-course meal
The house was state of the art at the time and featured this copper water heater in the kitchen
The pantry, just off the kitchen was stocked with period necessities
Upstairs, the large hall serves at a library. The tour guide told us that Gallier didn't like the wasted space. Another very neat feature of this room/hall, was a large operable skylight with could be opened to help let all the hot summer air escape and keep the house cooler in the summer months.
The master bedroom was very ornate, furniture, carpet, and even the wallpaper. The tour guide mentioned something about how valuable all of the dark carved wood furniture was, but I missed that part. It was produced by a local craftsman.
The exterior of the house is drastically different facing the private rear courtyard. The facade is wood and plaster, versus the large cut stone and wrought iron on the front of the house.
Here is photo of one of the slaves quarters. They were much simpler than the rest of the house, no woodwork or wallpaper.
