Description 

Named by the writer, George W. Cable, in his "Old Creole Days," this building appears first on Engineer Broutin's map of the city in 1728 as Captain Pascal's Place. It appears to have survived the first major fire in the city in 1788, according to Governor Miro's map; purchased in 1925 by Mrs. I.I. Lemann who presented it to the State of Louisiana which maintains it as a museum. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS LA-39)
