Take a walk with Milton Carr and you will never forget it. Born in New Orleans 6th Ward, otherwise known as Treme, Milton is one of the city’s outstanding Tour Guides.
Milton was educated in the Catholic Schools of New Orleans, Corpus Christy School and St. Augustine High School.
Milton worked at Domino Sugar for 33 years. He learned everything there was to know about the granulation process of sugar cane, including its ties to slavery. In the 1850s, New Orleans had more millionaires than New York because of sugar.
Milton’s already healthy interest in Louisiana’s past became his passion and he became a licensed New Orleans tour guide in 2001.
Milton is very knowledgeable of New Orleans history and culture. He has a lot to share about Mardi Gras Indians, Social Aid & Pleasure Clubs, and New Orleans music history.
Past president of The Tour Professionals of Greater New Orleans and past board member of The Tour Guide Association of Greater New Orleans, Milton currently serves as a member of Save Our Cemetery’s Education Committee.
