Sentimental Journeys 2016: Coming Home to Longue Vue

Sentimental Journeys is the major fundraising event for Longue Vue House and Gardens, a historic estate in New Orleans created by philanthropists Edith and Edgar Stern from 1939 to 1942. To celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary and Edgar’s 50th birthday, the Sterns embarked on a 14-month trip around the world in 1936. Later documented in a privately published memoir titled “A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy and Other Countries,” the Sterns’ travels were the inspiration for Longue Vue’s first Sentimental Journeys benefit in 1995.

The 13th Sentimental Journeys fete was held on Friday, April 8, 2016 at Longue Vue House and Gardens. Chaired by Stephanie Laborde and Anna Schaefer, this year’s progressive party meandered through our historic pre-World War II estate, exploring the grand home and gardens that Mr. and Mrs. Stern created upon their return from their around-the-world trip.
