New Orleans Garden District
Historic Homes and More
The New Orleans Garden District was once a number of plantations that was divided up into large lots with large homes in the early 1800's. The neighborhood was settled by English speaking residents who did not wish to live in the French Quarter. It was known as the City of Lafayette in 1833 and became part of New Orleans in 1852. Later these large lots were divided up into smaller lots. That is why you see a variety of styles in the area. The homes were built over a long period as lots were divided.
