Located on historic Bayou St. John, the Pitot House is the only Creole colonial country house that is open to the public on Bayou St. John in New Orleans. It tells the story of life along the bayou since the earliest days of settlement. The Pitot House has had a variety of owners from prominent lawyers to austere nuns. One of the most prominent was James Pitot, the first mayor of New Orleans after the city's incorporation who lived here from 1810-1819. The Pitot House is a National Trust for Historic Preservation Partner Place. More information about the National Trust.
