Jackson Square in the French Quarter of New Orleans is flanked by two symmetrical Pontalba buildings conceived in 1851 by the Baroness Pontalba as Parisian-style luxury townhouses. One of the houses has been furnished as it would have been in the 1850s and is open as part of the Louisiana State Museum.
