Why Damon chose Warehouse District
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.

Great location, spacious, well appointed.
We had a great time at this location. Great spot to get to much of NOLA, as long as you don't mind walking a little. Plenty of room for our family of 5. The building is historic and rustic, but very comfortable. We felt safe walking around the neighborhood. The including parking spot was important and very convenient. We would stay here again any time we came back to visit.
Great location, we could easily walk to French Quarter, take a streetcar to the garden district.
We loved the warehouse/art district and the ease of accessing everywhere we wanted to go. The property itself was ok. It lacked cleanliness, kitchen supplies, and general decorative appeal. Kitchen was extremely small and the only table to eat at seated 4, so not conducive to the amount of people staying. Manager was extremely responsive and helpful when needed.
We came for Mardi Gras. This location was perfect and the parking space was a great bonus! The apartment has lots of character and is convienient to parades, restaurants, museums and grocery store. The French quarter is an easy walk. The space slept everyone in our party easily. Bedding was nice quality and very comfortable. It is a climb to the third floor but we appreciated the exercise after all the eating!
8 of us celebrated my husbands birthday. Everything is close by. Grocery store, restaurants, trolley. Kitchen is a bit small if you are going to cook. Also table only seats 4. The three flights can be a lot and the end of the day but well worth it. Very safe and wonderful views.
Great property in a safe area!
We came down for a girls weekend. Great area and easy to get around!
Great space and great location. Had 7 guys and it was a good space for us. Price was great as well.
One block from the Contemporary Arts Center, Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the D-Day museum. Great restaurant like Pêche Seafood Grill, Emeril's, Herbsaint, La Boca and Rock-n-Saki are just a few blocks away.
