PAUL MORPHY BIRTHPLACE OPEN

January 24-25, 2015

At the historic LeCarpentier-Beauregard-Keyes House

1113 Chartres Street, New Orleans, LA 70116

Built in 1826 by architect Francois Correjolles for Paul Morphy’s grandfather, Joseph Le Carpentier, the LeCarpentier-Beauregard-Keyes House was the family residence of LeCarpentier's daughter, Louise Therese Felicite Thelcide LeCarpentier, and her husband, Michel Alonzo Morphy, from 1829-1841. It was there that their son, world chess champion Charles Paul Morphy, was born on June 22, 1837. Chess NOLA is excited to present the first Paul Morphy Birthplace Open on January 24-25, 2015.
