AT HOME WITH JEMMA: Inspirational Thursday-New Orleans Garden District

Garden district

Inspirational Thursday-New Orleans Garden District

In July we took a fun trip to  New Orleans.  We thoroughly  enjoyed so many aspects of the city but one of our very favorites  was the Garden District.  It too, is rich with history and so much  beauty. My husby and I rode the trolley to the Garden District and then set  out on our own little walk about.  Naturally it was hot and humid,  but this did not deter our zest one bit! Some homes in the District seem to be better preserved than others,  but never the less they are still beautiful and amazing structures.  So  much of the architecture is Greek Revival.  The Garden District was developed between 1832 and 1900 and is  considered to be one of the best preserved collections of historic  southern mansions in the United States.   As you can see the homes are very nestled and somewhat hidden  behind very large trees and heavy black wrought iron fences and  gates, also a typical style during this era.  The Garden District was the place for the new wealthy to set up their households in genteel style.  In particular these homes  showcased the essential British element of taste; the personal garden.   These homes demonstrated the latest in Victorian elegance, a  melange of high styles gleaned not just from the Spanish and  French but also includes the Italians and British.  When we got home I was curious as to what the lowest listing price was for one of America's most historic neighborhoods-$855,000!   Would you spend those dollars to live in the Garden District?

In the eighteenth century, newly rich tycoons filled the Garden District with lavish Greek Revival mansions and moody Italianate villas, many of which are still standing.
