Ernesto Caldeira has been a Southerner since 1970 . . . a resident of New Orleans and Woodville, Mississippi. He was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, grew up in a Portuguese family, went to Dartmouth, and by the time he was 26 he was the Associate Producer of Search for Tomorrow, the long-running thirty-five year award winning CBS-TV daytime drama. His work as a partner in the restoration of Rosemont Plantation, the family home of President Jefferson Davis, CSA brought him to Woodville in 1970; and plantations and historic architecture have been his passion ever since. This is his 26th year as a top selling agent at Dorian Bennett Sotheby's International Realty. His real estate focus has been the French Quarter where he listed and sold hundreds of buildings, both commercial and residential. Currently he has an amazing house tucked away behind some high walls a block from Jackson Square the center of the Quarter. It's contemporary and has parking, a pool, a huge garden, and lots of glass, a theater and even rental income. The asking price is $2,800,000. He has listed and sold plantations such as Houmas House in Darrow, Louisiana; Chretien Point in Sunset, Louisiana; D'Evereaux, The Briars, Mistletoe, Choctaw and Edgewood in Natchez; Rienzi in Thibodaux; Arlington in Franklin Louisiana; and many others. Currently he has Athenia c.1858 in Holly Springs, Mississippi which is one the more stunning Greek Revival houses in the state and Perique a charming early six room Creole Cottage on the river an hour north of New Orleans, listed at $695,000. Over the years he has been involved in restorations from New York to New Orleans and in 1986 was a co-recipient of the Vieux Carre Honor Award for the restoration of 516 St. Philip Street in the French Quarter. In 2002 he restored the Creole Cottage at 1022 Dauphine. Last year he co-wrote a 316 page full color book, THE PLANTATION WORLD OF WILKINSON COUNTY 1792-2012, as an all-volunteer fundraiser for The Wilkinson County Museum and African American Museums in Woodville. It won best book award in June of 2014 at the Mississippi Heritage Trust Annual Meeting in Tupelo. His genealogy of the family of Jefferson Davis and his siblings appeared in Volume IV of the Papers of Jefferson Davis, LSU Press, and Rice University and his work on the President was published in 1975 by BURKES PEERAGE ON AMERICAN PRESIDENTS in London. He is active as Executive Director of the all-volunteer Wilkinson County Museum in Woodville, recently served as a trustee of the Mississippi Heritage Trust for a six year term, was a board member of the Friends of the Cabildo in New Orleans for which he won the outstanding volunteer award in 2000, the vestry of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Woodville, and has served on the board of the Vieux Carre Property Owners Resident & Associates Inc.
