Name: James Welch
City: New Orleans, Louisiana
Comments: There is reason to believe that this house was owned by the McCarty family, who owned the McCarty Plantation that made up today's Lower Ninth Ward. The house is still intact even though it was lifted off of its pilings and moved about 6 inches to the side. It is still on its pilings. It has a large hip-roof, four large doric columns along the front porch, a double beveled-glass door and a central hallway with the rooms on the sides. It is set back on a large lot and is bigger than the other houses on the block or in the area. It is a beautiful house which should not be demolished.
