The Dufour-Plassan House is one of New Orleans' landmark buildings.

In 1908 the structure was moved to its present location, in the same Square facing North White Street. It was subsequently purchased by Adolph Plassan.

Start times both days will be 10 am Central. Internet bidding will be provided by the Crescent City website (, and An in-person preview will be held beginning Wednesday, May 1st, excluding weekends, from 10 am to 5 pm Central time.
