Photo Gallery and History of the Inn
Our 1912 home was built in the heart of Mid-City by Mrs. Magdalena Holzer, the wealthy widow of a sheet metal baron; Mrs. Holzer’s portrait hangs in the foyer. The house was described in tax records at the time as “a single-story frame house” but was actually a raised, center hall bungalow featuring a mixture of architectural styles ranging from the classical revival to Victorian rococo, to craftsman style.
During 2001, this New Orleans mansion went through major restorations and became a beautiful bed and breakfast. In 2005 hurricane Katrina damaged the house tremendously. The first floor of the house was flooded by 6 feet of water. The roof was damaged causing the second and third floor to received water. The new Owner purchased the house on July 2011 and restored and renovated what is today the Canal Street Inn.
