Saint Roch CemeteryBywater/ Marigny NeighborhoodNew Orleans, La.      St. Roch Cemetery was founded by Reverend P.L. Thevis in 1874. During one of New Orleans’ Yellow Fever outbreaks, the patron saint of protection from epidemics, Saint Roch, was prayed to and was asked to protect the people of New Orleans during this epidemic. When nobody from the Reverend’s Church died of Yellow Fever, Thevis founded this Cemetery, as part of his promise to Saint Roch. He promised that if Saint Roch would keep his people safe, he would build a chapel to Saint Roch. This Chapel is now inside of St. Roch Cemetery.

Bywater Neighborhood in New OrleansSo Many Colorful Homes and DoublesA Very Artistic Neighborhood      The Homes along the Mississippi River in the Bywater neighbor are very colorful and artistic. The area also has many doubles. The Bywater stretches from the Marigny to the Industrial Canal between St. Claude Avenue and the Mississippi River. There is no other neighborhood in the USA that I know of.       The Neighborhood has changed in color and artistic homes in the last 20 years. It never existed like this in the 20th century. It is fun to walk and view all the homes and unique colors and changes that have been made to the homes. A Few Atristic Homes in Bywater,Very Unique and Colorful !

Every year St. Patrick's Day in the New Orleans Irish Channel is celebrated on Third St. between Magazine and Constance streets.  Tracey's and Parasol's are the highlight of the party. They celebrate with a huge block party with entertainment, food, drinks and games.  All in Green. Green shirts, green glasses, green socks, green beads, green hair and any thing else left to the imagination.  You’ll find the entire block packed with people coming out of these tiny neighborhood bars.   Food and drinks are plentiful.  A great deal of locals show their Irish by dressing in kilts, dancing Irish gigs, playing games with their green beer.    Since 1952, Parasol's has been ground zero for St. Patrick"s  Day in New Orleans.   Tracey's was the original Irish  Channel bar established in the 1949.  ...

French Quarter Homes     The New Orleans French Quarter has a large variety of homes that vary in style and size. Much of the variety has to do with the time that the homes were built and what they were used for. There was a large fire in the French Quarter in 1788 that burned a lot of homes. Over time the designs changed as new homes and double were built as time moved forward. You can really see the differnce as you get closer to Esplanade Avenue walking from Canal Street.Creole Cottages - 1790-1850. Single story homes with steeply pitched roofs that were built on the street with no front yards. Creole Town Homes - 1790-1850. Three story homes. The third story is usually a living attic where the bedrooms were located. Many times the first floor was a separate unit for business or a gu...

Historic New Orleans BracketsBywater and Marigny HomesDesigns and Colors Bloom !    The late 19th Century introduced brackets on the front of homes. They are now very distinctive and beloved to see. Most were needed for support of porch or overhang. Others used brackets for ornamentil purposes. Influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement. Many were made locally and many were mail ordered from a mill that specializeed in brackets.       At the end of the 20th century brackets became like work of arts with so many colors that really began to show off the designs. Now it looks like Artwork on the home. At his time the trim, windows, shutters were all brought into the world of colorful designs.
