Types of Homes in the Garden District Neighborhood

The Garden District was established in the 1830’s by wealthy American businessmen who needed a neighborhood of their own in the booming port city of New Orleans. They moved up the river from the predominantly Creole French Quarter, and built glorious mansions and homes with large outdoor rooms and gardens. The Garden District features all the traditional New Orleans homes on a grand scale. Many of the homes are original, and there are also a large number of homes and condos that have been renovated and rebuilt to replicate the originals on the outside and possess state of the art luxury on the inside. The district's houses largely reflect the Antebellum period, exuding an air of grandeur and historic charm. Expansive Greek Revival mansions, adorned with intricate ironwork and surrounded by lush gardens, juxtapose with charming Victorian cottages featuring ornate details and pastel hues. These homes, many of which are recognized as national historic landmarks, encapsulate the wealth and opulence of New Orleans' golden age.

Things to Do

There's a wealth of intriguing activities to engage in when you're in the Garden District. You can wander along Magazine Street, a six-mile-long stretch adorned with antique shops, boutiques (such as nationally known boutiques American Apparel, as well as locally owned shops such as Ruby), and restaurants offering a taste of New Orleans' vibrant culinary scene. A stroll through Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, one of the city's oldest 'cities of the dead,' offers a unique perspective on the city's rich history. Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a walking tour through the district's picturesque streets, where you can learn about the historic homes and their former inhabitants. Additionally, the Garden District also hosts several annual events, such as the popular Halloween and holiday home tours, showcasing the district's stunning architecture.

Places to Eat

The Garden District is a food lover's paradise, with a diverse range of restaurants serving up traditional Creole and Cajun delicacies alongside contemporary cuisine. Commanders Palace, one of New Orleans' most iconic restaurants, has been a Garden District staple since 1880, offering upscale dining in a stunning Victorian mansion. For a more casual experience, head to the quaint Coffee Cottage for a hearty breakfast or lunch. You can also grab a po' boy from Magazine Po-Boy Shop, a local favorite known for its delicious sandwiches and friendly atmosphere. No visit to the Garden District would be complete without a stop at Sucré, a charming dessert shop offering decadent treats and macarons in a picturesque setting.


The Garden District is also home to some of the city's most reputable schools. Lusher Charter School, known for its rigorous academics and robust arts program, is a popular choice for many local families. New Orleans Charter Science and Mathematics High School, nicknamed Sci High, is renowned for its intensive STEM curriculum. Additionally, the neighborhood houses the Sacred Heart Academy, a historically significant private Catholic school.
