Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses
Built in 1831 by Samuel Hermann, a German-Jewish immigrant who quickly amassed (and lost) his fortune in the commodities market, the Hermann-Grima House, located at 820 Saint Louis Street, is one of the most significant residences in New Orleans. Generations of New Orleans' notable Grima family resided on the property from the 1840s until the 1920s. The Gallier House at 1132 Royal Street was built in 1860 by James Gallier, Jr., one of the most prominent architects of 19th-century New Orleans.

The Woman's Exchange purchased the Hermann-Grima House in 1924 and acquired the Gallier House in 1996. Their mission is to continue the legacy of the Christian Woman's Exchange, established in 1881, by restoring and maintaining the houses, and interpreting their contribution to and place in New Orleans. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses are a leading authority on historic preservation, offering educational, entertaining and interactive programming in the world-renowned French Quarter.
