Damon purchased this apartment in 2012

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.

Beautiful place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

I had never been to NOLA before and booked this location for a girls' trip. I greatly appreciated the host's responsiveness and flexibility before and during our stay. There was a ton of space, so it was perfect for all 8 of us girls, and it's located in a cool neighborhood (Arts/Warehouse). We were able to easily walk to most attractions (it's located a block from the WWII museum) or split a quick, inexpensive Uber. I highly recommend!

The Two Floor Apartment was perfect for a friends reunion. We also rented the apartment on the 2nd floor, everyone was more than pleased with the accommodations, and the view of the bridge from the balcony was beautiful any time of the day. The location was a nice central location to many NOLA attractions and just a short walk to the Streetcar. The group agreed that we would like to stay there again when we return.

Great place to stay for a fun weekend in NOLA

  • 5 of 5

So happy that I found this place! I was very nervous to be the trip planner for a larger group--a lot of pressure to pick a great place to stay where everyone is happy! This gorgeous place did not let me down. Very spacious and plenty of sleeping arrangements. So nice to have a balcony as well--if you can stand to be out in the New Orleans heat in the summertime! :) I would come back in a heartbeat!

Great location and space

  • 5 of 5

We had a bachelor party with 7 guys. We rented the 3rd and 4th floor. Plenty of space for all guys to have their own separate beds. The space was large enough that we never felt cramped. All of us were able to hang out on the back deck before heading to Bourbon St. with no issues. I timed our walk from the end of Bourbon St. to the apartment and it was right around 10 minutes at a leisurely pace. It was less than $10 for an Uber XL ride.

Kitchen is small if you are planning on using it to cook and such but it wasn't an issue for us. I will definitely look at renting again when I am back in New Orleans. It was close enough to get to everything but just far enough away to not be loud/disruptive at night. The area between Bourbon St. and the apartment was pleasant and I was never concerned about safety, even walking back as a group in the early morning hours.

There are quite a few stairs to get up to the apartment so that is something to consider if stairs are an issue for you. Overall, great experience!
