Arlington

Arlingtonwas built in the 1830’s by Euphroisie Carlin on a large Spanish land grant. It was said to have been saved during the Civil War because the mistress of Arlington was from Indiana. It is considered one of the finest Greek Revival homes in Louisiana. There are three architectural elements that make Arlington spectacular. One includes the Colossal order pillars with Pedimented porticos in the front and back and side loggios. Secondly includes the unusual cruciform layout – a wide hall goes front to back and a secondary hall goes side to side. Thirdly, there are over 10 plaster ceiling medallions that are intricate and include a variety of classical motifs. The home was once renovated in 1904 by Sully Martel in 1904 and then in 1965 by Mr. and Mrs. Carl Bauer. Private residence.
