Pass By: Museum of the Free People of Color, 2336 Esplanade Ave, New Orleans, LA 70119-2502

The Museum of the Free People of Color preserves the three hundred-year history and culture of free people of color in New Orleans. The museum explores their history beginning in 1708. The front gallery chronicles the first 100 years, including the period under Spanish rule, 1763 to 1800, when slaves were sometimes allowed to purchase their freedom. One of the most moving exhibits includes a floor-to-ceiling petition to President Abraham Lincoln, dated Jan. 5, 1864, from 1,000 free men of color who were New Orleans property owners.

Pass By: Garden District, St Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70130-5968

The Garden District has a collection of well preserved historic mansions that were built by wealthy newcomers to New Orleans. The area was developed between 1832 and 1900 and has a diverse mix of homes, antique shops, bars, cafes, gardens, parks and restaurants.


Pass By: St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, 3421 Esplanade Ave, New Orleans, LA 70119-2902

St. Louis Cemetery #3 is also known as The Angel Cemetery is located on ground that once was home to a leper colony. Louisiana has long hosted communities for the victims of leprosy and this cemetery began as a burial ground for those who died of the disease in New Orleans. Decades later, in 1854, a particularly devastating yellow fever epidemic left the city more in need of 8,000 burial plots so the priests at St. Louis Cathedral purchased the land for another sorely needed Catholic cemetery.

This tour is just perfect for walkers, cyclists or even motorists. The stops are beautiful and engaging. I especially loved hearing about the Free People of Color in New Orleans as well as the less well known tales of the Luling Mansion.

This tour is so much better than any commercial tour you could take with a bunch of other people. Go at your own pace, listen again if you like, explore a beautiful area of the city. This tour is packed with well-researched history and culture...More
