Steamboat House

There are two grand houses in the Holy Cross neighborhood of the Lower Ninth that sit on the banks of the Mississippi and are known as the Steamboat houses or Captains’ houses. They are said to have afforded captains’ wives a perfect vantage point to await the return of their steamboat-piloting husbands. Both houses survived the storm.
