Treme Tour Friday | April 2 | 10 a.m. Departure Point: Treme Coffee House (1501 St. Philip St.) Purchase Tickets: https://friendsofthecabildo.secure.force.com/ticket/#/instances/a0F3h000003gCIXEA2 _ The Friends of the Cabildo walking tour of Treme provides a rich, detailed perspective on one of the city’s oldest and most storied neighborhoods. Originally known as “back of town,” the old Creole feel of Treme makes it easy to imagine the early 1800s multicultural community formed by immigrants, free people of color, and refugees from Saint-Domingue. An important center of the city’s African-American and Creole culture, Treme is the cherished home of fourth and fifth generation residents who strive to maintain the area’s cultural and social traditions. We will trace the origin and development of Treme through the amazing nineteenth century architecture (including Creole cottages, townhouses, and shotgun houses), geography, and urban influences dating from the subdivision of this land by Claude Treme in the 1790s to the present day. _ During the City of New Orleans modified phase 2 our tours will be limited to 8 guests. Masks are required for the tour and to practice social distancing we will use the Vox Machine System. _ Dates, times, and group sizes subject to change with City of New Orleans guidelines.
