Uptown

 

The Uptown District, beginning upriver of the Garden District and stretching to Broadway, is a place where late 19th homes are scrupulously maintained and small-scale restaurants and shops abound.

Part of lands granted to Louisiana Governor Jean Baptiste LeMoyne in 1719 and divided into smaller plantations in 1723, what is now the Uptown neighborhood experienced a building boom after the 1884 World’s Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition.

Today, frame houses with ample galleries on streets intersecting St. Charles Avenue are the norm and more modest shotguns built to house workers are prevalent closer to the river.
