1951 Lakeshore Drive. Built as a tavern, circa 1850, this is Mandevilleís only masonry building from the antebellum period. It is missing its original upper level wraparound gallery and ground floor openings. In the 1860ís, it was part of a large complex of buildings known as the Soldierís Home. Honore Dousan, émigré from France and a physician in Napoleonís army, cared for Confederate soldiers here. He was succeeded by Dr. Alonzo Givens until funding was lost circa 1880.
