Buckner Mansion -
On American Horror Story: Coven, this is Miss Robicheaux’s Academy.
It is 1853... 'Cotton is King,' New Orleans is the center of the universe, and you are Henry Sullivan Buckner. You commission renowned architect Lewis E. Reynolds to build the most beautiful and magnificent mansion in the very heart of New Orleans' Garden District. The result is one of the finest examples of Southern ante-bellum architecture, having a scale of elegance from the 19th Century that is rarely found.
The Buckner Mansion, with its urban setting in unique New Orleans, is indeed the envy of the Garden District - a 'landmark amongst landmarks.' This 20,000+ square foot residence is soo stately with its Forty-Eight monumental Ionic and Corinthian fluted cypress columns and, yet, so charming with endless Verandas, ornate cast-iron, and 'floor to ceiling' windows. This combination of power and shear beauty sparks one's imagination back in history to pre-civil war New Orleans. Just Imagine!
The amenities and comfort of this 'one of a kind' residence are very fine, but the ambience and 'state of mind' this place emanates is, well, Simply Priceless.
