Overview

Reservations required by phone. The Garden District of New Orleans is America's grandest Antebellum neighborhood. Originally a sugarcane plantation located Upriver from the French Quarter, it was subdivided in the 1830s, experiencing a building boom that last through the civil war and beyond. Majestic architecture ranging from purist Greek Revival to full blown examples of Italianate., Swiss Chalet and Gothic line the streets, canopied with a natural leafy cathedral of Live Oaks while fountains splash and statues bare witness. Long the haunt of the affluent and famous, today the Garden District is to many celebrated actors, writers and politicians. Columns and Oaks Garden District Walking Tours is the only tour that takes you inside of one of these magnificent mansions.

Kevin was an excellent tour guide, very gracious. The tour of the Broel house and the stories that go with it are not to be missed. I don't believe you will get a better tour. Do not wait until "next time". Tempus fugit.

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
