THE BARONESS DE PONTALBA AND THE RISE OF JACKSON SQUARE EXHIBITION
JOIN ME: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13
I encourage you to revisit it,
or see it for the first time...
Meeting the Pontalba family and reconnecting
them to Louisiana has been a highlight of
my life. Fate! Read more here.
Sunday marks the last day at the Cabildo,
and what an extraordinary year it's been!
I feel so fortunate to have reconnected New Orleans with the descendants of one of the most prominent founding families.
Please join Andrew Hopkins and me for a final walkthrough,
this Sunday, Oct. 13 at 2PM
at the Cabildo
If you're a Friends of the Cabildo or the Louisiana Museum Foundation member, admission is complimentary.
(If not, please consider joining to support these organizations.)
Otherwise expect a nominal entrance fee.
With this final walkthrough, Andrew and I will be sharing stories and reminiscing the highlights of the last few years that have involved the remarkable Pontalba family, who today live in their family chateau in France, where their ancestors have been living since 1805.
Afterwards, come by at 4PM:
cocktails in my courtyard
Join me in a toast to
Charles Edouard and Isabelle,
Baron and Baroness de Pontalba
and their son Pierre....
without them none of this
would have ever happened!
(The Pontalba's are in France & not attending)
In order to prepare properly, please let me know if are coming by Friday, October 11. RSVP here!

Bayside Enters New Era!
New family to own and care for this historic gem.
Previously in Roane family for nearly 90 years
I'm excited to announce that Bayside Plantation has sold. And with this sale, a few important things have happened.
1) Working with my broker Tracy Talbot, founder of Talbot Historic Properties, we successfully balanced the interests of both the buyer and seller as dual agent for $775,000.
2) Well-preserved historic homes command higher prices - and by setting a new high market value for the Teche Country region, you can expect that this bodes well for other historic homes and for the strength of that market.
We also believe that historic homes offer the buyer a more satisfying living experience. Bayside has been well-maintained. Built in 1850, the home is on the National Historic Register and sits on 11.8 acres along Bayou Teche. The house is surrounded by a grove of ancient live oaks draped in Spanish moss. Further, many architectural details remain intact.
3) We are thrilled Bayside Plantation's new owners are throughly committed to the future care of this exceptionally beautiful home and property!
