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.

Wonderful cute apartment with tons of character!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this apartment! There is tons of character in the whole building and it's amazing! The apartment was clean, functions, and cute. The back balcony was so fun to sit on. The apartment is centrally located, but also quiet! The reserved parking spot in the back is worth its weight in gold! The owners were wonderful to work with, we did not have any issues during our stay, but they assured us they were always available! Definitely recommend this apartment for a New Orleans trip :)

Wonderful apartment, would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the charm of the place, and appreciated all the history given in the manual. We were very comfortable, and found it easy to walk to the French Quarter and other areas of interest. Communication was good, and Kevin was very helpful with a few questions we had, and quick to respond.

Fantastic condo in the Warehouse District

  • 5 of 5

Loved my weekend stay at this condo. Very open space with just the right furniture and great character of the 175-year-old building. Yet still with all the modern conveniences. Was perfect for two, but more could have been comfortable, especially with the wide-open living space and two balconies. It was especially nice having reserved, off-street parking available with the rental. My only complaint was the early morning foot-stomping from the neighbors on the floor above, but that wasn't enough to ruin my stay. Would just pack earplugs for next time :).

Convenient to WWII Museum, Trolley route, and great restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this charming, historic upstairs town house with high ceilings and hardwood floors. It has a big living area and spacious bedroom with a TV; and a modernized, cozy bathroom. The kitchen is small and basic with standard sized appliances. Hardly necessary to be anything else with such great nearby restaurants. A back porch is perfect to enjoy an evening glass of wine and cheese. We were pleased it had a washer/dryer and parking. The various towels were tired or limited. It could be improved with fresh linens. However, we managed well enough with what was provided.

We had a request for the owner and it was addressed quickly and to our satisfaction, which we greatly appreciated.

In addition to restaurants, we could easily walk to the St. Charles Ave. trolley line and several museums and art galleries as well. The grocery store was a few blocks away. We found this townhouse convenient to Magazine St, The CBD and The French Quarter.

We were very pleased with our accommodations.

Chic Warehouse District Apartment on New Orleans

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our apartment in the Warehouse District, which was quiet and out of the noisy craziness of the French Quarter. It was a nice walk to the French Quarter and only a few blocks from the St. Charles Street streetcar so we thought the location was perfect. The apartment looked like something out of a Restoration Hardware catalogue! Lovely. My only criticism would would be that I would give the bathroom and kitchen a C- (max) for cleanliness. Over all, however, we thought it was quite a find and we were happy to have found such a nice apartment in an historical building.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

I would give this apartment a 5 stars for customer service. Our host was so attentive and helpful. He met us at the apartment even though we were late getting there and explained everything completely. He was always just a text or phone call away and immediately responsive. The owner's rep, Kevin, was heads above what I have come to expect over the past five years we have come to visit our son on numerous occasions and rented in all areas of the city.

The unit was clean and pretty much as shown in the listing. I have shared my concerns with the owner as to improvements. However, they are minor and this property is such a great value for it's location.

We could not have asked for a better location. Two blocks to the WWII museum and other amazing art museums, one block to the Julia street

art galleries. If you want a true local flavor, try LaCasita bar on Julia Street, great happy hour. The appetizers and drinks are worth the visit. Not to mention Pesche and our favorite Cochon, just minutes away. It is a wonderful walk to the Quarter, maybe 20 minutes, through beautiful historic buildings in the business district. We spent all day and not enough time at the amazing WWII museum and our tired feet were so happy it was only about 2 blocks back! I even forgot to mention the parking. That is such a huge plus if you are driving or renting a car or visiting someone with a car.

My only reason for not four stars are the minor concerns I shared with the owner (I am a very spoiled visitor to NO) and that it is not quite ready for this level but given the price it is a true taste of New Orleans charm,. It is a very local, architecturally correct building. With only a few minor improvements, I would definitely rent this unit again.

Thank you for sharing your place.
