The Old Ursuline Convent in New Orleans is the finest surviving example of French colonial public architecture in the country. Louis XV in style, formal and symetrical, with restrained ornament, the convent was constructed between 1748 and 1752 for Ursuline nuns, whose mission was to nurse the poor and teach young girls.
