Grace King House

Grace King House

Born in New Orleans in 1852, Grace Elizabeth King was one of the best known literary figures from New Orleans.  Memories of a Southern Woman of Letters, written by Grace King and published after her death in 1932, gave us a portrait of women who went through the Civil War and its aftermath having to shed the role of sheltered wife and mother, adopting the new role of bread winner and independent person.

This home was a meeting place for artists and writers in the early 1900's.
