Armstrong-Danna House 1868 New Orleans,LA

The Armstrong Danna House, 2805 Carondelet St

The Armstrong Danna House, 2805 Carondelet St.: This outstanding Italianate-style mansion is listed by the city as a local landmark with the highest possible rating. However, it has suffered from neglect for many years and is in desperate need of care, the society said. The masonry needs tuckpointing, cracks are showing between the first- and second-story windows, the upper and lower gallery floors are cupping, the shutters are rotting, the ironwork needs reconditioning, the foundation needs careful attention and some historic architectural components are missing.


  1. I would LOVE to live there!
    Merry Christmas, my friend!



  2. The ironwork on both the balcony and the front gate is richly designed and beautifully crafted. Would this have looked over the top when the house was built, or did lots of houses have similar decoration?

  3. What a beauty ! I miss living in New Orleans. What I wouldn't give for one of these gracious old mansions with the double gallery.

  4. Merry Christmas Divine Theatre!!!!Helen this house is a little over the top although this type of house with cast iron was very popular in mid 19th century New Orleans

  5. What is the story. Is it lived it???? Can't a society or some one help? I kinda like it's condition, especially in New Orleans. Merry Christmas my friend. Richard from MY Old Historic House.

  6. Hi Richard. All I know it it is on a endanger list. It looks like people are living in it.
