An example of French Creole colonial architecture, the Lavalle House was built in 1805 during Florida’s second Spanish period by Charles Lavalle and Marianna Bonifay. It was originally constructed as a duplex using bricks thought to be obtained from the Lavalle-Bonifay brickyard.
Ten years later the house was converted into a single-family home by the new owners. This house is the oldest standing example of French Creole Cottage construction in Pensacola.
This ¾" thick wooden replica is handcrafted in the U.S. to reflect its historical features. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. A short description is written on the back.
Look for Casper, our mascot black cat, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
