English: The old Ursuline Convent Building, in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA is the oldest intact building in Louisiana. It was designed in 1745, built starting in 1749 and completed in 1753. (A few pieces of an older convent building next to the site of the current one were reused to construct the present structure as the older one was demolished.) After a new convent was constructed in another part of the city in the 1820s, this building served as the Archbishop's palace. The bottom floor is now a museum and the upper floors house the Archdiocese historic library.
