The Cabildo is one of the most historically significant buildings in America. Built between 1795 and 1799 to replace a structure that burned in the 1794 fire, the Cabildo served as the seat of government in New Orleans during the Spanish colonial period.
In the Sala Capitular, one of the rooms of this three-story structure, the Louisiana Purchase was signed in 1803. This single, bloodless act nearly doubled the size of the United States at the time, and it opened the areas west of the Mississippi River for exploration, expansion, and settlement.
From 1803-1812 the Cabildo was used by the Louisiana Territorial Superior Court. After Louisiana became a state in 1812, the building continued to be used by the New Orleans City Council until the mid-1850s when Gallier Hall opened on St. Charles Avenue.
Following the Civil War, the Cabildo was the home of the Louisiana Supreme Court from 1868-1910. The Sala Capitular was the site of several landmark court cases, including the controversial separate but equal Plessy v. Ferguson decision in 1896.
Located on Jackson Square in the historic French Quarter, next to the St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo continues to showcase the rich and colorful history of New Orleans and Louisiana. Cross currents of many cultures, ethnic groups, and nationalities have given the city a cosmopolitan flavor found nowhere else in the Deep South. This unique blend of cultures is reflected in the Cabildos permanent and rotating exhibits, which incorporate the personal perspectives of everyone from history book characters to ordinary inhabitants.
Throughout the building are more than 1,000 artifacts and original works of art, including The Battle of New Orleans, Eugene Louis Lamis huge 1839 painting that shows intricate details of the final and most decisive battle of the War of 1812. There are also portraits of famous (and infamous) Louisiana figures, exquisite engravings of nature artist John James Audubon, and many interactive displays, all of which tell the story of Louisiana and its place in American history. Other exhibits include: Freshly Brewed: The Coffee Trade and the Port of New Orleans and Louisiana and the Mighty Mississippi.
In 1988 the roof of the Cabildo and its upper floor were severely damaged by fire. Over the next five years, the landmark was authentically restored using 600-year-old French timber framing technology. It reopened to the public in 1994.

New Orleans, Louisiana - French Quarter Architecture (2020)
The buildings and architecture of New Orleans are reflective of its history and multicultural heritage, from Creole cottages to historic mansions on St. Charles Avenue, from the balconies of the French Quarter to an Egyptian Revival U.S. Customs building and a rare example of a Moorish revival church.
The city has fine examples of almost every architectural style, from the baroque Cabildo to modernist skyscrapers.
The French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carré, is the oldest neighborhood in the city of New Orleans. After New Orleans (La Nouvelle-Orléans in French) was founded in 1718 by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, the city developed around the Vieux Carré (Old Square in English), a central square. The district is more commonly called the French Quarter today, or simply The Quarter, related to changes in the city with American immigration after the Louisiana Purchase. Most of the extant historic buildings were constructed either in the late 18th century, during the city's period of Spanish rule, or were built during the first half of the 19th century, after U.S. annexation and statehood.
The district as a whole has been designated as a National Historic Landmark, with numerous contributing buildings that are separately deemed significant. It is a prime tourist destination in the city, as well as attracting local residents. Because of its distance from areas where the levee was breached during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 as well as the strength and height of the nearest Mississippi River Levees in contrast to other levees along the canals and lakefront, it suffered relatively light damage from floodwater as compared to other areas of the city and the greater region.
New Orleans is a consolidated city-parish located along the Mississippi River in the southeastern region of the U.S. state of Louisiana. With an estimated population of 391,006 in 2018, it is the most populous city in Louisiana. Serving as a major port, New Orleans is considered an economic and commercial hub for the broader Gulf Coast region of the United States.
New Orleans is world-renowned for its distinct music, Creole cuisine, unique dialect, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The historic heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street. The city has been described as the most unique in the United States, owing in large part to its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage. Founded in 1718 by French colonists, New Orleans was once the territorial capital of French Louisiana before being traded to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. New Orleans in 1840 was the third-most populous city in the United States, and it was the largest city in the American South from the Antebellum era until after World War II. The city's location and flat elevation have historically made it very vulnerable to flooding. State and federal authorities have installed a complex system of levees and drainage pumps in an effort to protect the city.
New Orleans was severely affected by Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005, which resulted in flooding more than 80% of the city, thousands of deaths, and so much displacement because of damaged communities and lost housing as to cause a population decline of over 50%. Since Katrina, major redevelopment efforts have led to a rebound in the city's population. Concerns about gentrification, new residents buying property in formerly closely knit communities, and displacement of longtime residents have been expressed.
The Old U.S. Mint in New Orleans
Once a U.S. and Confederate coin maker, the New Orleans Old. U.S. Mint ( in the French Quarter is now part of the Louisiana State Museum where you can see historic artifacts, exhibits and entertainment at the New Orleans Mint Performing Arts Center on the third floor.
