Shotgun

Built from 1850 to 1910, the Shotgun House is a predominant architectural style in New Orleans and can be found throughout the city. Typically, Shotgun Houses are one-story, narrow rectangular houses raised on brick piers. Most have a narrow porch covered by a roof apron that is supported by columns and brackets ornamented with lacey Victorian motifs. Many variations of the Shotgun House exist including Double Shotguns (pictured), and Camelbacks (with a partial second floor on the end of the house).
