118 Royal Street, at 10 o'clock this morning. Burlator's obituary in the Tues 24 Jul 1888 edition of The Daily Picayune of New Orleans reads. After an illness of five days, Mr.Pierre Ernest Brulatour yesterday departed this life at his old home on Rue Royale. A cruel attack of pneumonia five days ago was so severe that medical science proved of no avail, and an old citizen and prominent merchant was taken hence, leaving a host of friends to mourn his loss. Brulatour Courtyard was one of New Orleans' oldest landmarks and probably the most photographed and painted patio in the country. It symbolized much of the architecture New Orleans is noted for. Horse drawn carriages entered the long archway from Royal Street, circled the centerpiece then discharged their passengers.
Ears went by and the house changed hands many times -- from Francois to his brother Emile, to another wine importer in the 1880s named Pierre Brulatour. Following ownership by the mansions namesake, the property fell into a period of decay. A year later the television studio building on Toulouse Street was completed, making 520 Royal Street the home of WDSU-TV. WDSU owners, management, and staff carefully restored, preserved, and maintained the mansion's original classic beauty until 1998, when WDSU-TV moved to its current location on Howard Avenue.
