Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez… or Let the Good Times Roll! If you’ve ever heard of Mardi Gras, chances are you think of New Orleans. No doubt, the Big Easy has a strong carnival tradition; Mobile, Alabama does too. But the Mississippi Gulf Coast is no stranger to Mardi Gras celebrations.
The Charnley-Norwood House in Ocean Springs boasts construction that marks a turning point in modern American architecture and design. Initially built in 1890, the house was designed by Louis Sullivan, often referred to as the father of the skyscraper, and his draftsman, Frank Lloyd Wright, the father of modern residential design. The house has stood the test of time and weather, from fire to flood, and we are fortunate to still have this piece of history.
