Context/Comments
One of Laurel's most significant early-20th century residences based on its unusual poured-concrete and wood construction, its well documented design by a noted New Orleans architectural firm (DeBuys, Churchill & Labouisse), its high degree of architectural finish, its outstanding integrity, and its association with the locally prominent Gardiner family. The eclectic residence exhibits Neoclassical detailing with Mediterranean overtones apparent in the tiled terrace, tiled roof, bracketed roof overhand, wrought-iron trim and side porch with Tuscan columns.
