On October 6, 2015, the Henry Jones Cottage on DâAbadie Street in New Orleans was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
The 7th Ward home was built around 1855, according to the NRHC listing, and serves as a great example of a classic Creole Cottage.
The Henry Jones Cottage represents â… an important era of construction and architecture in the city of New Orleans, and as one of the last surviving structures from an earlier period of development, Faubourg Gueno,â according to the NRHC website.
The homeâs namesake, a free person of color, is believed to have built the house and added to the cottageâs features throughout his lifetime.
The historic home is currently owned by Raymond Fuenzalida, who is utilizing commercial and residential tax credits to fuel the ongoing restoration.
The Henry Jones Cottage is yet another historic structure representative of the diverse and significant contributions to American architecture that can be found across New Orleans.
We at the PRC are delighted that the Henry Jones Cottage has been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
