Chapp House is a building located at No. 42, Cours Nolivos in Basse-Terre. Built in the late eighteenth century, it is one of the oldest buildings in the city and the island, and was listed as a historic monument on February 2 1987.
On 2 February 1987, the Chapp house is listed as a historic monument. After the death of its owner, Miss Chapp (Oraison family), the building is abandoned for many years causing a significant degradation of the architectural structure. Due to this deterioration, the Department of Cultural Affairs of Guadeloupe (DACG) had emergency work carried out at the end of 2008 to strengthen and secure the building. In the summer of 2013, it was the subject of a public inquiry for the DACG to acquire, renovate and install its head office.
