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.
