      St. Elizabeth's was built as a boarding school in 1865 and later turned into an orphanage for girls in 1870. The Daughter's of Charity closed the school in 1989 and moved the program to Marrero, where they already operated a similar program for boys. The place was put on the market and almost became upscale apartments and senior citizen housing before Anne bought it in 1993. St. Elizabeth's is an immense three-story brick edifice of 55,000 square feet. The three buildings that comprise St. Elizabeth's are the largest cluster of Second Empire design architecture in the city of New Orleans and are on the National Register of Historic Places.

    This 47,000-square-foot building, which once slept 300, consumes an entire block of real estate. Rice visited here as a child and has the witch Deidre Mayfair flee here from the First Street house at age 9. The Rices bought the immense building in 1993, and Anne peopled its stained-glass chapel with some of her 2,000 dolls.The orphanage is still famous as the site of one of Rice's vampire Lestat Halloween parties for 4,000. Since Rice's sale of the orphanage, the building has been transformed into condos."
 
     These units were all were all sold very quickly and were top of the line units with many owners doing some major upgrades. All the units were very well finished. Town homes were built in the rear. Parking is inside gated common area.
