Erected about 1807 by Major General Pierre Denis de la Ronde on whose St. Bernard Parish plantation the first engagement of the Battle of New Orleans was fought on December 23, 1814.

This was de la Ronde's city residence until his death in 1825, owned by his son-in-law Gabriel Villere from 1827 until 1846 and by Philippe Villere until 1861.

Damaged by Hurricane Betsy in 1965, it was repaired and renovated by Dr. and Mrs. E. Ralph Lupin, 1967, S. Stewart Farnet, architect.
