Architecture

The Garden District is famous for her stately Greek Mansions. The neighborhood also has an incredible variety of Victorian-era townhomes. Construction continued in the area until the 1970s when the neighborhood received its historic designation. Large lots were divided and subdivided again, leaving a patchwork of the variety of homes.
