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.

Charming and perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented multiple units in the house, and every room was well-kept and accommodating. The rooms were very charming and make you feel like you’re in New Orleans, not a generic hotel. The courtyard alone is worth staying here. What’s really unique is, this is a beautifully renovated historic property, but we were in the middle of downtown, so we were able to walk to the French Quarter and nearby restaurants.

Damon and Don went out of their way to help with anything we needed. They were extremely friendly and thorough in communication about what, when and where everything was. They also responded quickly to any questions we had.

Other items of note:

- Hardwood floors

- The second-floor balcony was good place to chill and drink coffee

- Beautiful and old courtyard

- The beds were extremely comfortable

- There was adequate space to unpack my luggage

- The bathrooms were new and clean

- The reserved parking space was a life saver.

I would rent this again in a heartbeat.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented 2 units from Damon for our first time in Nola. We were there for a wedding @ the Ogden Museum. It was a perfect location! Steps from the wedding, walking distance from great food, and the WW2 museum. We were also able to walk the the Harrah's casino and Bourbon street with no problems and not have to stay in the loud Bourbon party. Would definitely stay here again!!!

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 :)
