Rene Beauregard House, also known as the Malus-Beauregard House, is an 1830s porticoed mansion, an example of French-Louisiana architecture, overlooking the Battle of New Orleans battlefield. The house is named after its first and last owners and served as a country residence for several wealthy people during the 19th century.
The property on which the house is located was part of the original Chalmette Plantation, but was subdivided by the St. Amond Brothers in 1832 and sold to Alexandrew Baron. On the side facing the river, the property measured one arpent (196 feet) wide and 17 arpents deep, or approximately 15 acres. Baron purchased the property on behalf of his mother-in-law, the Widow Malus, née Madeleline Panneteir. The house was constructed in 1833 or 1834 for the Widows Malus, and is a sixty-by-twenty-foot structure. There are additional twelve-foot-deep galleries on the north and west elevations.
In 1880, Judge Rene' Beauregard purchased the property; it was retained by his family until 1904 when it was acquired by the New Orleans Terminal Company. In 1949, The National Park Service purchased the property and are its current owners.

Built in the classical style in 1832. The house was also known as "Bueno Retiro"

the house later took its present name from Judge Rene R Beauregard.Presently located at the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve the site of the battle of New Orleans.

  • I toured the Battleground on my own and the national cemetery. It was well worth the stop to see. You can climb up on the levee and the Mississippi is right there.

  • The house itself was kinda cool but learning about the battle of new orleans was interesting
  • At this time you can only see the outside of the house. I believe some repairs are happening at this time. It is a very beautiful area.
