As you step into the Lanaux Mansion’s antique atmosphere you’ll enter the era of the 1800s. The 11,000 square-foot mansion was built by its original owner, attorney Charles Andrew Johnson, known to have hobnobbed with Confederate General Robert E. Lee and other prominent men of the time. The guest rooms are graced with his furniture, artworks, books, and mementos.
The Lanaux Mansion was named by Forbes Magazine as one of the country’s best B & Bs and was the setting for the Brad Pitt movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
History enthusiasts can arrange for a tour to view original furniture and wallpapers from 1879, and museum-quality pieces including historic civil war memorabilia. Registered guests can arrange for a tour upon their arrival.
