History - Walker Mansion, a beautiful Queen Anne Italianate of the Victorian Era was built in 1880 by famed architect, Thomas Sully, who designed many of the mansions on St. Charles Avenue during that period. The house was built for Colonel Joseph Walker, the Baron of the St Charles Railroad (now Streetcar). He was known as a "Swashbuckling Capitalist" who made his fortune in the gambling business, which was considered a less than honorable profession at that time.

Beautiful and Comfortable
We had a wonderful time staying at Walker Mansion! I will most definitely stay here again if I return. It was in a lovely neighborhood and it was great to explore downtown or simply sit outside on the deck. Great food spots all around and easy access to the street car! This is a dream stay!
Thank you so much!! Please stay with us again any time.

The area was cleaned and well maintained. The kitchen supplied all of our needs and it was surprisingly private though there were other guests. Parking was no problem as well. The owners were awesome and offered their assistance for whenever we needed.
Thank you so much!!! Please stay with us again any time.
