Nelson Potts House, late 1840's

This was the home of Nelson Potts, 
 19th century Baton Rouge, master brick mason and builder.

His home here, at 831 North Street, showcased his expertize in masonry in Baton Rouge in the 1800's. Potts designed, built, or bricked (his role is unclear to me) many, now historical, building in the 19th century, as follows:

The Florence House (1850), the Louisiana Institute for the Deaf and Dumb and Blind (1852-1858), the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail (1852), the Stewart-Dougherty House (1854), the East Baton Rouge Parish Court House (1856-58), and more. Source
