The Jones house, built in 1847, is a rare example of a well-preserved plantation house in the Isle Brevelle area, one of the most prominent free people of color enclaves in antebellum Louisiana. One of Louisiana’s most outstanding examples of Creole architecture, it has many well-preserved features, such as the all-encompassing roof, large gallery porch extending the length of the house and unusual decorative features such as wrap-around mantels.

Built on a flat site, slightly elevated above the ground, this single story house has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Several rooms open out onto the porch. The large attic is unfinished but could be made to accommodate additional rooms.

The prints you are purchasing are crisp, high resolution black line copies on white bond paper. 

Please visit my other listings for many other drawings I am offering. I have house plans in wide variety of styles including Colonial, Craftsman, and Prairie, as well as plans of architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Irving Gill, Purcell & Elmslie and others.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube. This listing includes architectural prints ONLY. Any photos shown in the description are for information only and are NOT included in your purchase. For information about the photos please send me a message. Thanks.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are not complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL historic house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: Orders shipped to addresses outside the USA may be subject to customs duties at their destination. The buyer is responsible for any such duties.

The original drawings from which these dimensionally accurate scans were made are kept at the Historic American Building Survey, in the Library of Congress. (AN008)
