One of the grandest plantation mansions ever built in Louisiana, Belle Grove was built at the pinnacle of prosperity during the 1850's sugar boom in the South. Sixty-two feet in height, her thirty foot pillars were capped by solid cypress Corinthian capitals six feet high. Designed by Henry Howard for John Andrews—completed in 1857—the home was later owned by the Henry Ware family. Abandoned by 1925, the Historic American Buildings Survey documented her in 1938. This national treasure burned in 1952.
