Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 29, 1962):
From 1874 to 1884, this modest house was the residence of George Washington Cable (1844-1925), voice of the Louisiana Creoles. Cable made major contributions to American regional literature with his tales of New Orleans life; his work made the term "Creole" better known and understood.
