FLW Mississippi

Post by jrdet10 »

The wife and I are spending a couple of days in New Orleans before flying out of Tallahassee after touring the Spring House (thanks Byrd Mashburn)! We're curious about the FLW/Sullivan/Charnley properties along the way in Ocean City, MS. (W.A. Storrer attributes them directly to FLW whereas others call them a collaboration between him and Sullivan; I'm with Storrer). Are any of the buildings open for tours and if so, when?

The Charnley House has been restored and opened to the public, but the Sullivan House was blown to smithereens.

About 30 minutes north of NewOrleans is E. Fay Jones' Pinecote Pavilion at the Crosby Arboretum in Picayune, MS...just off I-59 Exit 4, about a 1/4 mile behind the WalMart.

In New Orleans is a circular Wrightian church at St Charles Ave. and Peniston Street designed by former Taliesin apprentice Leonard Spangenberg. More on Spangenberg here:

While in New Orleans, I highly recommend dining at Antoine's on St Louis Street between Bourbon and Royal Streets.

Thank you! Looking forward to escaping subfreezing Detroit for a while.
