A Look Inside the Self-Guided Tour: As we return to a 'new normal' at BK House, visitors are invited to tour the house in a self-guided format for the first time. Though we look forward to offering guided tours again soon, the current tour is also exciting because it reflects our new interpretive plan. This plan offers not only a peek into the lives of the house's namesakes PGT Beauregard and Frances Parkinson Keyes, but also explores 200 years of French Quarter history by elevating the stories of the many others who lived and worked on our property. It offers further exploration into how these people were affected by the society and systems of their day. They include people of color, enslaved and free, Sicilian immigrants, Depression-era craftsmen and other early French Creoles whose stories are being fully shared for the first time. As we recognize and appreciate the needed changes being fought for in the world today, we strive to create a meaningful dialogue with our visitors and community about the critical issues that are relevant to both the history of our house and the city of New Orleans as a whole.
