Throughout the year, Neville House serves as a community collective designed to integrate art, architecture and travel under one roof. The interior galleries at Neville House are carefully curated to connect local and regional artists and makers with natives and travelers alike. Come for a stay and enjoy an exceptional experience living with the works of established and emerging artists! Or make an appointment for a private guided tour of available artwork on exhibit throughout the historic home.
Neville House, built in 1905 for Monroe City Schools superintendent and Neville High School namesake Earnest Long Neville, is a two-story neoclassical architectural gem offering inviting porches, an open-air upstairs gallery and balcony with bird’s-eye views flanked by majestic magnolias and an 80+ year old camellia grove quietly nestled within the heart of the Monroe Garden District.
Behind the Vision
Northeast Louisiana native and Neville House proprietor + gallerist, Rebekah Boyd Lawrence, has an undying passion for preserving historic homes along with a lifelong love for supporting local especially when it comes to the arts and artists.
Rebekah is an avid traveler and collector which has inspired her to envision and create this community collective initiative known as Neville House within the Monroe Garden District. Her goal is to offer engaging opportunities for visitors and guests to become further educated about and enamored with works of art created by local, regional and national artists providing a 'stay with art' experience like no other.
"Experience authentic Southern charm with a European vibe."
