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.
