The Longue Vue Store & Visitor Center

Reflecting a legacy of design and giving.

With a focus on local artists, gardening, and Longue Vue-related history and design, the unique merchandise of the Longue Vue Store

honors the hospitality and civic engagement practiced by the Stern family while they lived on the property.

Visitors to Longue Vue can learn more about the design history and life of the Stern family in our Visitor Center, attached to the Longue Vue Store.

A collection of watercolor maquettes created by landscape architect and interior designer Ellen Biddle Shipman’s office are on view to give a look inside the house

for those who chose not to take a home tour. Learn how Shipman’s work at Longue Vue has granted us National Historic Landmark status,

how architects William and Geoffrey Platt worked to create a seamless design inside and out for a holistic site plan, and the Stern’s work in the community

that varied from voter’s rights to supporting local artists.

Open Monday through Saturday from 10AM to 4PM.

For other times, or for questions about the Museum Store and Visitor Center: or (504) 293-4716.
