Join us for a panel discussion with the authors and light reception for Louisiana Landmarks Society's new book: Gateway to New Orleans: Bayou St. John, 1708 — 2018, at the Historic New Orleans Collection, Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres Street, Thursday, June 14, 6 to 8 p.m., light refreshments follow.
Louisiana Landmarks Society’s Gateway to New Orleans: Bayou St. John, 1708-2018 traces the history and architecture of the historic Faubourg St. John in New Orleans, from pre-colonial days through its evolution from a glorious semi-rural village into a popular suburban neighborhood. Although published to commemorate the tricentennial anniversary of the founding of New Orleans, the volume has its inceptions years ago in the work of the late preservationist and writer Mary Louise Christovich. Her research and vision of recording the history and architecture of New Orleans' first European settlement comes to fulfillment in this handsomely illustrated and thoroughly documented work.
