100+ year old home was originally the old Seventh Ward schoolhouse & cafeteria. During the past 100 years it was at some point converted to a residence. Wonderful architectural character! The home has been vacant for many year and is in need of a motivated & creative buyer willing to make major remodel. Great project for someone! Sold with full waiver of warranty, limited knowledge of property condition, as seller has never occupied the home. Please allow 5 days for response on all offers.

    No interior pics but the history sound interesting.

    Maybe this is older than 1917?

      The form and details are certainly Greek Revival. Without more extensive images, I might guess a construction date sometime between 1845 and 1855.

    It is just down the road from Oak Alley Plantation which is incredibly beautiful if you want that pre-civil war look into Southern history. It is not a very populated area but peaceful and quiet and you are one hour from New Orleans which is all the big city you need. This house has tons of promise but I would consider putting it on pylons to make sure it doesn’t flood from the Mississippi River, plus higher up might give you the view of the river that would be spectacular. Wish we had some interior pictures. And I agree with Kelly that this is way older that 1917. I think it was part of the plantation myself. Maybe the cafeteria is newer?

    okay, this has to be acquired and shares sold to create the OHD clubhouse. 1.5 hours west to Prejean’s in Lafayette (better than Emiril’s place last time I was in either one!) and an hour east to the Big Easy. Annual meeting/family picnic during Mardi Gras week. do we have 88 members with 1100 each in their pockets?

    I recognize this location. There use to be a plantation home in ruins that stood in the open field to the right of the house. As a teenager, I remember stopping and walking thru the ground floor of the main house. It was Greek Revival in style, with a brick raised basement, a gallery around three sides and dormer windows on all sides of the hipped roof (Typical Louisiana plantation style). Sadly, the house was torn down about 25 years ago. I think the planation was call Hymel or Crescent Plantation. This little house probably was a support building for that plantation.

    First picture is lovely. Almost everyone would like this. Wonder what the building, with all the doors, on right side of pictures is. Looks like it is lots of dedicated work, but so worth it..
