Built in 1799 by Spanish merchant and ship owner, Bartholome Bosque, during the Spanish Colonial Period, The Pitot House has witnessed centuries of cultural history. The Pitot House is one of the few West Indies-style houses remaining in Louisiana, and was home to the first U.S. Mayor of New Orleans James Pitot and his family, 1810-1819. The only colonial Creole, country house in New Orleans that is open to the public, the building was purchased in 1964 by Louisiana Landmarks Society, an architectural preservation non-profit, which uses the house as its headquarters.
The Pitot House is a National Trust Partner in Preservation.
