Our annual celebration of one of New Orleans’ most recognizable architectural treasures is just around the corner! We hope you’ll join us this Saturday, May 12 for the Shotgun House Tour in historic Algiers Point – our city’s second-oldest neighborhood. This year’s tour will highlight six different houses that showcase the livability and versatility of our city’s vernacular architecture – plus three additional “lagniappe” properties.
Getting there can be half the fun – try taking the scenic route to Algiers Point on Saturday! The pedestrian ferry across the Mississippi River offers some of the best panoramic views of the city. The first ferry departs from Canal Street at 10:45 AM on Saturday morning, running every 30 minutes all day long with a $2 fare each way. The tour will be completely walkable once you arrive at the Algiers ferry terminal. See ferry schedule & more details from NORTA.
And remember – tour tickets purchased before the day of the tour are discounted – buy yours today!
