Treme New Orleans Neighborhood

Treme New Orleans

A designated Historic District, Treme New Orleans originated as a neighborhood populated by immigrants and free people of color. Filled with a history of music and culture, Treme became much more popular with new residents after the airing of the HBO series “Treme”. In the 19th century, Creole musicians gave concerts in Congo Square, performing the earliest forms of jazz music. Some of the oldest Mardi Gras Indian groups originated here as well.

The predominant architectural styles are Creole cottages, townhouses, and single and double shotguns. Renovations and remodels fill the area, which has undergone a renaissance (or gentrification, depending on who you ask) in the post-Katrina years. What was once a working class neighborhood is now in high demand.

Very walkable, you’ll find Armstrong Park anchoring the Uptown side of Treme, on the border of the French Quarter and the Central Business District. With short commute times, it’s a popular neighborhood with people who work both downtown and in the Quarter.

Most homes sit very close to the street, so off street parking is rare and commands a premium price. The largest homes in the area line Esplanade Avenue. There is also a bit of new construction sprinkled through the interior streets.
