THE HISTORIC FRENCH QUARTER: THE OLDEST NEIGHBORHOOD IN NEW ORLEANS
Nestled in a bend of the Mississippi River, the first New Orleans settlers chose to establish their community in what is now the French Quarter, thanks to its relatively high elevation compared to the surrounding area. Their instincts proved correct, as hundreds of years later, the French Quarter was largely unaffected when Hurricane Katrina devastated the neighboring lower elevation areas.
New Orleans’ shares a blend of historical architectural influence from French to Spanish heritage in architecture, design and culture. As a port city, many immigrants found their way to New Orleans, including refugees from the Haitian and French revolutions, as well as Irish, German, African, and American immigrants looking for a better life. This led to the unique mix of culture, cuisine, language, and religion that to this day sets New Orleans apart from any other city. Touring the New Orleans French Quarter provides a rich education of the many cultural influences that have make up the history of the city.
