HOME OF OBIER STUDIOS
The studio and workshops are located in Southern Louisiana on the grounds of the ancestral home of the Obier Family.
The home was built in 1838. It was one of several farm houses located along Bayou Gross Tete which provided a continuous water access route to the Mississippi River flowing down to seaport at the City of New Orleans.
There are five outbuildings on the property that serve to provide the living quarters as well as the offices and the workshop space.
The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The structure serves as an excellent example of The Greek Revival Style in Southern Louisiana. The home's significant historical relevance includes having been a battleground for a Civil War skirmish fought on the property in the year of 1863.
THE GUEST QUARTERS
The Garconniere or the bachelor's apartment, as it is traditionally known, is set just behind the main house and serves as a quest quarters for visitors to the property. The lower level, at one time, was used as a smokehouse and commissary. The original iron bars still cover the windows to secure the various dry-goods once stored there.
