Center Hall Cottage
The Center Hall cottage borrows its basic layout from the Creole cottage with its rectangular footprint and gabled roof, but also features Caribbean inspired architectural details. The style became common in the South during the early 1800s and was popularized in New Orleans by the upper middle class. In general, the structure is raised off of the ground and sits one and a half stories high with symmetrically laid out rooms accessed by a central hallway. What really sets the Center Hall cottage apart from its Creole counterpart is its deep front gallery, supported by elegant columns that can be seen in a plethora of designs.
