Garden District / Uptown

City of New Orleans

Past Meets Present
in the Garden District

Like much of New Orleans, the Garden District is full of history, displayed in its local points of interest and housing styles. This area was first developed in the 1800s as a collection of plantations and Southern mansions, which were later sold as New Orleans became more urban. That's why you'll often see 19th-century mansions along the same street as homes developed much later.

But today, the Garden District of New Orleans has plenty of unique features and homes to make living in this urban neighborhood a treat.
