Swoop-Duggins House


Swoop-Duggins House


A Little About The Building...

The Swoop-Duggins House (916 Lafayette Street) is truly one of the most unique buildings in all of New Orleans.  Part of the Upper Central Business District's National Historic District, as well as the local Lafayette Square Historic District, it is possibly the single oldest "house" remaining in downtown New Orleans.  At the end of the eighteenth century, the boundaries of New Orleans expanded upriver from the Vieux Carré (French Quarter.)  Previously operating as the ever eccentric Velvet Room, the brothel themed Sporting House, arts themed restaurant "Christopher Blake's," owned by gourmet laureate Christopher Blake (Gertrude Stein's last protégé), and most notably one of the longest running brothels in New Orleans, the Swoop-Duggins House doesn't fall short on soul or history.  Most likely built around or before 1830, the house is a three-story, three-bay, brick house with an attached two-story service wing... and yes, it most certainly does have ghosts.
