National Register Nomination (Edgar W. Hull House): “The house is of a French, hall-less plan with three rooms set abreast. It has a two-story, seven-bay front gallery, and a loggia and two cabinets at the back. The bricks of the first floor of the gallery are marked “E. Blanc.” Evariste Blanc was in the brick business in New Orleans from about 1833 to 1862. The back gallery was glassed in and enlarged in 1972 when a greenhouse was also added. Originally, the stairs projected beyond the front gallery. They were taken down prior to World War I and replaced with stairs in the foyer.”
