Maison Kichenin, Saint Denis

Maison Kichenin is one of the oldest mansions in Saint-Denis. Originally established in 1796, the house belonged to Jeanne Rosalie Houbert, who in the same year sold the house to a rich merchant. Through 1966, the mansion changed owners 16 times, and only since then has it become the Kichenin Mansion. The house features one floor covered with tin, two sheds, stables, two kitchens, a wood shop and a veranda. Today Maison Kichenin is a classic representation of the architecture of old creole mansions. Its courtyard has a wonderful fountain facing Rue La Bourdonnais.
