Preservation Resource Center
The architecture of New Orleans attracts visitors who marvel at the pleasing cacophony of the local streetscape. The 18th- and 19th-century homes, storehouses, and shops—of which, thankfully, still exist in considerable abundance—are as distinctive and homegrown as the city’s brass band sound. That uniqueness raises questions. Like, what’s with all the iron balconies? Why are houses are so narrow? Why do so many French Quarter homes have four front doors? The Preservation Resource Center is here to help sort that out. Founded in 1974, the center’s mission is to help preserve and interpret the city’s buildings and neighborhoods. The group’s Warehouse District headquarters (located in an 1853 showroom for an iron foundry) make a good first stop for anyone curious about the city’s architecture and how it got that way.
