Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: I have lived in New Orleans since 1973 and worked as a school psychologist for the New Orleans school system for 23 years. Our daughter grew up in the B & B, until she moved to her own place at 19. In 2005, I became a real estate agent specializing in historic properties. I love New Orleans with its rich history, wonderful architecture and fabulous food.

Why the Owner Chose Milan, New Orleans, LA, USA:
I purchased this house as a fire damaged property in 1977. I lived in the house for 30 years and working on it was a labor of love. I opened the Dusty Mansion as a B & B for the World's Fair in 1984, but closed it in 2007. In 2008 we began renting the house as a corporate rental.
