Garden District Walking Tour

Garden District Tour Saturday departing at 9 am. September 14th, 21st, 28th Tickets: $20 Members | $25 General Admission 504.523.3939 Departure Point: 1452 Jackson Ave. (riverside corner at Prytania St.) Most residents and visitors alike know of the Garden District as a stunning neighborhood full of Greek Revival and Italianate architecture, bounded by Jackson, St. Charles, and Louisiana avenues, and Magazine Street. But do you know who established the Garden District? What part did the NO & Carrollton Railroad play? Why do we always hear tour guides reference “Lafayette” and “Livaudais?” Discover the answers to those questions and more when exploring the Garden District with the Friends of the Cabildo. As we unveil the Garden District’s incredible architecture, and the influence of culture, climate, political events, and famous figures on the area, you will see these grand residences as more than just beautiful houses; they are the enduring statements of mid-nineteenth century Americans in New Orleans. Tours must be purchased ahead of time. Tours that do not have pre-purchased tickets, may be canceled.
