Background

LOWER GARDEN DISTRICT

The  Garden District, a neighborhood within the city of New Orleans, is home to some of the best-preserved Southern mansions in the United States.

When the area was first developed, each block had one or two homes, surrounded by gardens. It was a neighborhood for the wealthy who didn’t want to live in the French Quarter.

The Garden District has grown over the years, with more homes occupying blocks once reserved for gardens. Beautiful Victorian houses are now the main attraction rather than a lush garden landscape.

The Garden District continues to draw in wealthy newcomers attracted by homes that exude luxury in classic Southern fashion.

Living in the Garden District

Location is a benefit: you can live close to the city and all it has to offer while enjoying the peace and quiet of a well-established community.

It is under the purview of the New Orleans Public School District, but offers charter schools and private school options. Parochial schools are a critical part of the education system in New Orleans and within the Garden District, there are several top choices for students from kindergarten to 12th grade.
