In 1857, Alexander Harris commissioned a home to be built for himself and his new bride in New Orleans. The house, completed just a year later, was later dubbed the Magnolia Mansion and served as the headquarters of the Red Cross during WWII. This 1857 half dime, minted in New Orleans, recalls the construction of a mansion that is currently open to the public as a bed and breakfast.
