Beams and Brews visits Dodwell House
Historic Dodwell House is the newly renovated home of Anna’s Place, a youth program operated by St. Anna’s Episcopal Church. The center hall cottage on Esplanade Avenue was built in 1846 for Eliza Ducros Marsoudet by two Creole free men of color, and the home was expanded in 1883. The property had fallen into disrepair in recent years, and St. Anna’s Episcopal bought the building to restore its historic features while adding modern-day systems. Now named after the Rev. Robert and Mary King Dodwell, the site will be the home of the church’s Anna’s Place youth programs, a community center and a coffee shop. The project was powered with the help of Louisiana’s state historic rehabilitation tax credit with Mathes Brierre Architects designing the transformation, Mayer Building Company serving as the general contractor, and Michelle Stanard Duhon, owner of Southkick Historic Preservation, as the owner’s representative and tax credit consultant.
The PRC’s Beams & Brews offers a chance to view the property inside and out, hear from the project’s managers and enjoy free drinks.
