Moonlight on History
A full moon shines on one of St. Charles Avenue's lovely historic homes.
The Grant-Black house, in the Garden District on St. Charles Avenue, was built
in 1887 for William Grant, the U. S. District Attorney for the Eastern District of
Louisiana from 1889-1892.  The Queen Anne Revival home is thought to have
been designed by famed New Orleans architect Thomas Sully.  It's noteworthy
because there are few fully developed examples of this type and style in
Louisiana.  It has been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
