Lafayette Square & Warehouse District Tour

Saturdays (9AM): July 20th, August 10th
Tickets: $20 Members | $25 General Admission

Departure Point: Lafayette Square (Henry Clay Statute, Gallier Hall is across the street at 545 St. Charles) 

Walking along the busy concrete sidewalks of the Central Business District today, it is difficult to imagine that the streets now shaded by skyscrapers were originally part of Belair, the plantation of city founder Bienville—part of his 1719 land grant which stretched to the present-day Jefferson Parish line. The Friends of the Cabildo Lafayette Square & Warehouse District walking tour reveals the history behind the present day commercial district, from the plantation beginnings through the explosive American growth during the peak years from 1830–1860, to the present day. Marvel at historic buildings on Lafayette Square, St. Charles Avenue, Julia Street, Lee Circle, and more! This tour provides a historic backdrop for a new appreciation of the American Sector.
