White Hall on the Atchafalaya

17523 La Hwy 418 Atchafalaya River Road Lettsworth, LA 70753
$3,100,000

Description

Noted New Orleans Architect Henry Howard designed the elements of White Hall in the early 1840’s. Home of Senator Bennett Barton Simmes, founder of Simmesport, the house is a liveable 6000 square feet, and has been lovingly restored to the period of his ownership. It is furnished entirely in mid 19th century antiques, which will be sold with the house. Updated plumbing and electrical provide comforts to the five bedrooms, ballroom and modernized kitchen. Grand porches surround the house, as do acres of beautifully concieved period gardens, and seven outbuildings. There is a full size in-gound saltwater pool as well. Owner’s agents are protected!

 

A note from CIRCA: We understand the need to present the history of this house honestly and accurately. We have worked with the owner to shed some light on its past. The home was commissioned by a plantation owner, Elias Norwood, who trafficked enslaved people. It was later sold to Bennett Barton Simmes, who did the same. Later, Union General Nathaniel P. Banks used the house as a military headquarters in 1863. We encourage all interested buyers to do their due diligence in understanding the home’s complex history and the many people who contributed to its creation, maintenance and history.
