The French Quarter a National Historic Landmark of New Orleans. 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 #frenchquarter #neworleans #louisiana #historicbuilding #america2016 by munmchow_lance

Did you know most of the #FrenchQuarter was actually built under Spanish rule (and design) after 2 great fires in the late 1700s wiped out most of the colonial French architecture? It wasn't until even later & the Louisiana Purchase that immigrants from Italy Ireland Germany African counties Haiti and other "foreign French" areas came in...making up the diverse culture seen here. #historylesson #neworleans by katiematthews_

It's a beautiful day to stumble upon one of the French Quarter's many hidden gems. Did you know that most of the architecture in the French Quarter is actually Spanish? After several fires destroyed the original French architecture in the late 1700's the Spaniards rebuilt the city during their 40 year rule of New Orleans. Photo by: @brookeboydd by jwmarriottnola
