Built between 1722 and 1732 by Nicolas Touze, Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar is reputed to be the oldest structure used as a bar in the United States. The structure and fence are in the old French Provincial Louis XV style. The building escaped two Great Fires at the turn of the 19th Century, due to slate roofing. Between 1772 and 1791, the property is believed to have been used by Jean and Pierre Lafitte as a base for their Barataria smuggling operation.

Acrylic on Canvas, 20 in. x 16 in.
