Experience the history and beauty of Longue Vue House and Gardens, a National Historic Landmark in New Orleans, Louisiana. Longue Vue features Classical Revival style buildings and landscaped gardens, a magnificent collection of European and American decorative and fine arts pieces, museum exhibits, entertaining tours, educational programs, and a delightful museum shop.
The estate was designed in 1939-1942 for philanthropists Edgar Bloom Stern, a New Orleans cotton broker, and his wife Edith Rosenwald Stern, an heiress to the Sears-Roebuck fortune. The site is a collaborative tour-de-force, combining the landscape and interior design of Ellen Biddle Shipman, the architectural genius of William and Geoffrey Platt, and the horticultural knowledge of Caroline Dormon, with the informed patronage of the Sterns. With colorful seasonal blooms, Longue Vue provides a memorable experience year-round.
