Every fall the Board of Managers of the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses honors our most generous supporters with a reception and dinner celebrating the Circle Level members of the Historic Houses Society. This year’s Historic Houses Gala will be held at a local and recently renovated historic home. The evening will feature live music, elevated cuisine and full bar.

The Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses are anything but your typical museum. Our donors and patrons have inspired us to push the boundaries of what our museum can be, and our historic properties have become thriving community anchors and cultural centers. Built in 1831 and 1860, respectively, the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses are continually recognized for upholding the highest museum standards in preservation and education, and we are an accredited museum by the American Alliance of Museums.

How are we able to accomplish our goals, serve our ever-growing audience and remain successful? Only with your support! Joining the Historic Houses Society supports our mission of preserving New Orleans’ architectural and cultural heritage for future generations and funds our growing array of important exhibitions and educational programming at our National Historic Landmark properties—it is your investment that allows us to ensure the continued vitality of our organization.
