Why Damon chose New Orleans

The elegant townhouse at 838 Camp Street was designed by James Harrison Dakin (1806-1852), an influential architect in New Orleans who also designed the landmark St. Patrick’s Cathedral down the street. The land was first owned by Gasquet, Parish & Co., a commission merchant company largely responsible for the initial development of the American Sector. Construction on this townhouse, originally one of nine sister “rowhouses,” began in the early 1840s.

The first known inhabitant of the townhouse was Walter Cox, a cotton merchant and owner of the cotton firm W. Cox & Co. established in 1858. It appears that the Civil War resulted in Cox’s firm going bankrupt, as his home was sold in a sheriff’s auction in 1867. The house was purchased by attorney Alfred J. Philips, partner in the esteemed New Orleans firm of Roselins & Philips. Sometime during the 1870s, ownership of the property transferred from Philips to his brother-in-law, influential attorney John Blackstone Cotton from Georgia, who married Alfred’s younger sister Sophia in 1852. Blackstone served as a New Orleans City Attorney in 1850, as a District Judge (1853-1857) and as Superintendent of Elections (1857-1858). During the Civil War, Cotton served as a Confederate Army Officer from 1861 until he fell ill in the field in 1862.

Margaret Robinson Barnett (1887–1977) purchased the property in May of 1921. Margaret owned and operated “Dixie Stove Works” out of what is now the property’s commercial space at 840 Camp. The company boasted itself as “the South’s largest manufacturer of stove parts.” Margaret and her husband also housed “Roomers” in the properties residential units beginning in 1930. These renters hailed from such varied places as Germany, New York, Louisiana, Minnesota, and South Dakota. The residence had become primarily commercial in the latter half of the 20th century, with Dixie Stove Works as its last commercial occupant.

NOLA-ther place like it!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had the most wonderful time staying at Damon's and exploring NOLA! The historic apartment is adorably quaint and in a perfect location for getting around the city. Kevin, the property manager, and Damon were both very easy to get in touch with and super helpful both before, during and after our stay. I'd stay at this beautiful spot again in a heartbeat! Thanks guys!

Great location for not needing a car!

  • 4 of 5

I love these old row houses. Exposed brick walls. Balconies. Courtyards (New Orleans is the PERFECT courtyard lounging city!).

The location is great for walking to the FQ, WH district art galleries, the streetcar towards uptown, and even a short hike to the Irish Channel. No car needed!

The layout of the apartment is well suited to a family needing three beds (one is a foldout sofa), however the two main bedrooms have VERY tall beds not suitable for small kids.

Bachelorette Weekend in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT stay at this property. We were in town for a weekend stay with a great group of girls celebrating an upcoming wedding. The place was amazing, it was so full of character!! The exposed brick was charming and the outdoor patio was wonderful. Most of the weekend we walked to all of our events and the area felt very safe and it was a straight shot down one street to get to the French Quarter where we spent a lot of our time. I would highly recommend this location to anyone!

Great New Orleans vibe!

  • 5 of 5

The location was good, and the place was roomy and comfortable. We also really enjoyed opening the doors and relaxing in the courtyard. Tune into a nice jazz station and play over the house audio...

Owner's Response: Mark We rarely have complaints about cleanliness and our crews are very good. I wish you had told us of you dissatisfaction at checkin as we could have addressed these concerns during your stay. Nonetheless, I am refunding you entire cleaning deposit. I sincerely apologize that the cleanliness of the unit did not meet you expectations. If you do stay with us again I assure you that you will not encounter this problem again. Damon
