GARDEN DISTRICT WALKING TOUR
10am and 1pm Daily
THE GARDEN DISTRICT
The Garden District survives as a showcase of magnificent houses and gardens. Hear the stories of the cotton brokers and commission merchants who made their home in the Garden District.
ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE NEIGHBORHOODS IN ALL OF AMERICA
The Garden District became a fashionable enclave of New Orleans’ most successful American citizens, and moving “Uptown” to the prestigious Garden District was considered the culmination of one’s achievements.
LAFAYETTE CEMETERY #1
“Once again, citizens heard the dreaded call of “bring out your dead” given by cart drivers relieving residents of rotting corpses and hauling them to mass graves here and around the city.”
Our Garden District Tour includes time spent in Lafayette Cemetery. Originally part of the Livaudais Plantation, Lafayette Cemetery has been used for burials since at least 1824. Lafayette Cemetery #1 is the first and oldest municipal cemetery in New Orleans.
