Villa Convento is a Creole townhouse built in or around 1833. The land was purchased from the Ursulines nuns. The first owner was Jean Baptiste Poeyfarre, who commissioned the construction of the building. His widow, ten years later, sold the property and building to Octave Voorheis. Mr. Voorheis lost this purchase in the depression following the Civil War, approximately in 1872. During the following twenty-year period, there were two different owners. On March 10, 1902, Pasquale Taromina purchased the property. The family lived here until February 1946. The property was no longer a single family dwelling. It was converted to housekeeping rooms. Many of the former occupants of the rooming house have visited and reminisced about their student days living at the "Old Town Villa," .
