Edith and Edgar Stern were married in June 1921; soon afterwards, they purchased five lots on the edge of New Orleans and began to develop the Longue Vue property as their family home.
In 2021, we are launching a Centennial Campaign to mark Edith and Edgar’s 100th anniversary. Leadership gifts of $10,000 and above will be memorialized in a new Centennial Circle installation in the historic Lath House and will be directed to the centennial initiative of the donor’s choosing.
Centennial initiatives include:.
FRIENDS OF LONGUE VUE
The purpose of the Friends is to create interest in and support for Longue Vue House and Gardens by creating educational programs, fundraising activities, and volunteer opportunities. The Friends are responsible for Longue Vue’s annual Design Symposium, which raised $80,000 in 2019 to benefit the Education Center in Longue Vue’s Discovery Garden for children.
Annual dues are $50 for members and include an Annual Meeting, dedicated volunteer opportunities, special Longue Vue Board and Friends events, and behind-the-scenes access to this historic institution.
