Beauregard-Keyes House Tours

Built in 1826 for a wealthy auctioneer, this house is named for two people who once called it home. New Orleans native and Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant (P.G.T.) Beauregard was in command when the first shots of the Civil War in South Carolina were fired at Fort Sumter, in April 1861, and he lived in the home from 1866 to 1868.

Nearly a century later, Frances Parkinson Keyes called the house home from the 1950s until her death in 1970. The author of more than 50 books and short story collections, she wrote many of her books, including Dinner at Antoine’s, The Chess Players, Madame Castel’s Lodger and Blue Camellia, while living in the home.

The Beauregard Chamber contains original furnishings belonging to the general and his family. Keyes’ collections of antique dolls and tea pots are also on display in the house.

Practical Info

The Beauregard-Keyes House is located in the French Quarter. It is open Monday through Saturday, 10am to 3pm.
