The Luke Troxler family house in Hahnville, circa 1870, is one of the very few French Colonial cottages still in existence in the parish. It has bousillage in the walls, square nails, a hip-gabled roof with tin covering, clapboarding on the exterior walls, a triple front door with a central hall, transoms and sidelights, decorative porch posts, a rear screened-in porch, and French doors with shutters on several of the front doors. The interior chimney and real lean-to addition have been removed.
J. Hanno Deiler (1849–1909) was born in Bavaria, Germany, was educated and taught in German schools, and emigrated to the U.S. in 1872. He settled in New Orleans, becoming principal of a German school. He later was appointed a professor of German at the University of Louisiana (Tulane). His most notable work was published in 1909, The Settlement of the German Coast of Louisiana and the Creoles of German Descent, which uncovered historical information lost for almost two centuries. Deiler, a linguist, was able to determine that many descendants of the German Coast settlers were for the most part German and not French. He was interred in Greenwood Cemetery, New Orleans.
