The history of this home dates back to 1909 when Mr. James Brown built the home for his family. Architecturally interesting, the two-story hipped roof house still retains important decorative elements of the Queen Anne style including Greek iconic pillars supporting the front porch and 14 foot ceiling and elaborate moldings throughout. Mr. Brown sold the home in 1909 for $6,958.73 to William Lobdell. The home was converted from private residence to fraternity at LSU (Kappa Alpha, 1912. Sigma Chi, 1914) and eventually rented to Standard Oil executives in the mid-1900s. Today, the home sits in the heart of downtown within walking distance to downtown including River Road biking paths and Arsenal Park, groceries, restaurants, symphony, churches (of every denomination) conventions center, bars, clubs, gyms, festivals, museums, libraries, coffee, and so much more. With easy access to I-110/I-10 you will enjoy living counter-flow to traffic patterns and mere minutes from every corner of town. Call today for a private tour.
