    One thought on “Creole Houses: Traditional Homes of Old Louisiana”

    1. I have purchased three copies to send as gifts! This book shows true American Houses, not thecookie-cutter you see today. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!

    2. Fascinating from both historical and design perspectives. I wanted to see more of each property that was featured!

    3. The wonderful photographs are the main point of the book but the captions and commentary are helpful and informative.Chapters are: Louisiana’s Creole culture, New Orleans, River Road, Pointe Coupée, The Bayou Country, Natchitoches and Cane River. Suggested reading. Highly recommended if you live in or want to travel to Louisiana, especially the southern part, or even if you just want to look at photographs of interesting old houses.I plan to check this book out again sometime.
