Profiles In Preservation Program

Profiles in Preservation Program

Since 1939, the Garden District Association has worked to maintain the historic nature of our homes and gardens, and to protect our vibrant neighborhood.

The New Orleans Garden District received National Historic Landmark status in 1971. As part of that process, a survey of our 78-block district concluded that 83% of our structures — 951 of 1,137 — were historically important or “Contributing”, making our neighborhood one of the largest concentrations of intact historic homes in the country.

In our 80th year as an Association, we ramped up our efforts to preserve and protect. In a spirit of celebration and education, the Profiles in Preservation Program was launched. Under the guidance of the Board, a Committee has engaged a team of respected architectural historians, advisors and professionals in photography, graphic design and writing to accomplish this ambitious project. We are grateful for the immediate support from homeowners thus far and undertake this work hand-in-hand with you, the stewards of these architectural treasures. We invite you to join in!
