<p>The Beauregard-Keyes Historic House is a National Historic Landmark built in 1826 and restored to its present condition by noted author Frances Parkinson Keyes beginning in 1948 with the assistance of architects Richard Koch and Samuel Wilson, Jr. An outstanding example of the raised cottage type, it was built for prominent local auctioneer Joseph Le Carpentier by American-born architect François Correjolles, who incorporated both Creole and American features in his design. As the only example of its architectural type open to the public, the structure offers a unique educational experience to visitors and furthers the understanding of New Orleans history. </p><p>Through its collections, exhibits, educational programs, guided tours, and special events, the museum educates the public about the historical significance of the site, demonstrates the importance of historic preservation, and strives to raise community awareness of New Orleans' cultural heritage. The museum's collections are exhibited on a regular basis for the educational and aesthetic enrichment of both locals and visitors to the city. Documentary research and accuracy in presentation guide the programs and activities of the museum so that the visitor experience fosters interest in preserving America’s enduring architectural and historical legacy. </p><p><br></p>
