Historical information


Notable features


The Ursuline Convent was the second building – out of three – constructed for the Ursulines, in the city of New Orleans. It was completed in 1751, replacing the original abbey built in 1734.

The convent's grounds were rather expansive, being primarily occupied by the building itself, which was built in a French neoclassical style. It also possessed a spacious garden, part of which was used for cultivating vegetables and the like. Notably, a large part of the convent was under construction, with a lot scaffolding having been set up.

In the early 19th century, the nuns moved to another convent, after which the Ursuline Convent would, for some time, function as the residence of the Bishop of New Orleans.


  • The Latin phrase "virgini deiparae dicatum", which translates to "consecrated to the god-bearing Virgin" could be seen above one of the convent's entrances.
  • It was the second tallest building in New Orleans, with the tallest being the Saint Louis Cathedral.
  • It was also the only location in New Orleans where nuns appeared.
  • One of Jeanne's diary pages could be found on the roof of the convent.
