NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A historic home in New Orleans’ French Quarter is set to re-open to the public next week.

The Louisiana State Museum says in a Tuesday news release that the “1850 House” on St. Ann Street will re-open on May 3.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will include remarks by Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser.

The 1850 House is part of the state’s Lower Pontalba apartment building at Jackson Square. It has been furnished and preserved as an example of mid-19th century middle-class life in the French Quarter.

It’s one of five Louisiana State Museum properties usually open to the public in the Quarter. However, it had been closed since August for cleaning and repair.
