Exclusive Construction Tour of the Deutsches Haus!
May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree – $25
Come join us as we tour the Deutsches Haus Construction and its triumphant return to Mid City! On May 17th the AIA New Orleans will be hosting an ‘Exclusive Construction Tour of the Deutsches Haus’ from 6 – 7 PM.
In 1884, the State of Louisiana built Camp Nicholls, a home for disabled Civil War veterans. The old oak trees on the lot are present in photos from that era. When the last veteran died in the 1940’s at the age of 106, the state used the facility for World War II social services, mostly for children. After the war, until 1977, it was a Louisiana National Guard facility. From 1977 until Hurricane Katrina, it was leased to the New Orleans Police Department for the Third District police station for the New Orleans Police Department.
In summer 2017, the site was prepared and services brought in so that the 2017 Oktoberfest could take place at the new location. The foundation was completed in January 2018. Construction of the new building should be completed in Autumn 2018.
The tour will be led by architects from Mathes Brierre and representatives from Deutsches Haus.
*Refreshments and beer will be served.
