French Quarter [VIDEO] | NOLA Neighborhoods

French Quarter, New Orleans LA Neighborhood

One of the most architecturally significant neighborhoods in the entire United States, the French Quarter (known locally as simply “The Quarter”) has a rich and cultured history that has less to do with the French and more to do with the Spanish than you’d know without a Louisiana history class.

Lucky for us, we have a guy. A really smart, used to be a teacher, knows-his-local-history guy.

Thank you to the NOLA History Guy, Ed Branley, for spending time with us and talking about the development of the Quarter.
