The Faubourg Tremé, located geographically between North Rampart and North Broad and from Canal Street to St. Bernard Avenue, is not only America’s oldest black neighborhood but was the site of significant economic, cultural, political, social and legal events that have shaped the course of events in Black America for the past two centuries.

Today Treme is the destination for visitors and locals to celebrate the achievements of African Americans. This neighborhood is home to several museums dedicated to African American life, art, and history, as well as Armstrong Park, a memorial to the great jazz legend Louis Armstrong.
