This creole cottage is located in greater Treme, near the overpass that interrupts this very historic street. Creole cottages in this area date around the 1850’s. Today, it is in very poor condition, and is structurally unsound due to neglect. Owner Neil Morris owns Redmellon Development Co. and is planning to use Go Zone money to build a new structure and promises to work closely with the HDLC to build something that conforms to the appropriate style. Something to note, this house lacks the dormers which date some creole cottages to the 1830’s.
