Discover the history of New Orleans through its architecture! On this two hour tour you will learn about the oldest African-American neighborhood in the United States, formed in the early 1800s. This residential neighborhood was formed by Free People of Color, Haitian Refugees and other various immigrant groups. We will discover the early beginnings of this area, known as “back of town”, as we discuss residential architecture, places of worship, and social and pleasure clubs. Famous for its role in music history, Congo Square/Armstrong Park is included in this tour.
