Historic Creole Cottages
New Orleans Homes
Creole Cottages were built along the Gulf Coast when Spain and France had the area as colonies. New Orleans French Quarter is the one place that had the cottages built close to the ground and right on the street. The majority of the homes were 1.5 stories with 4 rooms down and bedrooms up. The four rooms down were all square with a kitchen in the courtyard that was a separate building. No kitchen in the house.
