Explore 300 years of New Orleans History
New Orleans has from the beginning differed from all other cities that were establishing themselves during the 18th and 19th centuries. The Vieux Carre’, or Old Square as the French Quarter is properly known, was surrounded by swamps and is built upon the highest land, the furthest south along the Mississippi River. Too distant from France and Spain to be ruled properly, the city and it’s inhabitants were often left abandoned and forgotten for many years at a time. These periods of isolation left little in the way of enforceable laws. When combined with the severe limitations of dry livable land, New Orleans would have saints, sinners and slaves living amongst wealthy creole families with ties to European nobility. Brothels operated across the street from churches and voodoo queens worked along side catholic priests.
