Greater New Orleans Historic Sites

Going Back Centuries in Crescent City


The Garden District

The Garden District

Established in 1718, with travelers inhabiting the area decades if not centuries before that, New Orleans is almost bursting with history.

Make your way to central New Orleans along Canal Street – the historic division line between the Central Business District and famed French Quarter.

The oldest neighborhood in New Orleans, the French Quarter – or Vieux Carré – is set along the Mississippi River, and was the spot from which the rest of Crescent City expanded.

Many historic sites are located in the Quarter, including the French Market, Jackson Square, Bourbon Street, and the New Orleans Mint.

Originally established in 1791, the French Market is a collection of vendors offering everything from New Orleans souvenirs and fresh seafood to books, music, toys, beauty products, and fashion.

Just down Decatur Street, the iconic Jackson Square was built in 1721, and is both a U.S. National Historic Landmark and found on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The square, or Place d'Armes, features the recognizable St. Louis Cathedral – completed in 1794 – the statue of President Andrew Jackson, and dozens of performers, artists, and musicians.

Other historic sites in the Big Easy include Tulane University, established in 1834, and the famed Garden District. Bordered by St. Charles Avenue and Magazine Street, the Garden District is a neighborhood of historic southern mansions first constructed in 1832.

Also a U.S. National Historic Landmark and listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the Garden District includes New Orleans landmarks like the George Washington Cable House, Commander's Palace, and the Anshe Sfard.

Thousands of other historic sites are found throughout New Orleans. The first Mardi Gras was celebrated in 1699, while the Presbytere – a French Quarter museum built in 1813 – not only educates visitors on the history of New Orleans, but is a U.S. National Historic Landmark itself.
