Notes
Survey number HABS LA-1103
Building/structure dates: 1857 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1915 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1938 demolished
Significance: The present owner of the site is the Government of the United States, which acquired it with the building thereon in 1938, for the erection of the present Federal Building. The vendor was the Corporation of the First Presbyterian Church, by whom the site had been owned continuously since 1835. An earlier church was built on this site by the same Congregation in 1835, destroyed by fire in 1854, and rebuilt in 1857. This building was damaged by the hurricane of 1915, and repaired at a cost of $100,000. It was demolished in April and May 1938.
