Historic New Orleans Garden District

Source: Frommers.com

New Orleans Garden District is a preserved gateway to the southern history and one of the country's most lovely neighborhoods. 

#2. Colonel Short's Villa

#4. Our Mother of Perpetual Help Chapel

This is an entire block of the mansion and gardens, peck and tweezered up to the smallest detail. It is obvious that this neighborhood of beauty which is all about the tradition and charm is the one featured in many Hollywood's movies. 

#5. Women's Opera Guild House

The New Orleans Garden District was laid out in 1832 by Barthelemy Lafron as a part of the French Quarter. The breathtaking district took the hearths from many celebrities who decided to live within it: Anne Rice, Nicholas Cage and Sandra Bullock for example.

#7. Johnson House and McGehee Schools

#9. and #10. Pritchard-Pigott House and Morris-Isreal House


#12. Brevard-Mahat-Rice House


#19. Commander's Palace


#20. Lafayette Cemetry
