Our expert preparators are putting the final touches on "Storyville: Madams and Music," #THNOC's new exhibition that opens on Wednesday, April 5. Here, Robert Gates III smoothes out an enlarged print of the Southern Railway Terminal. For those arriving by train, the Southern Railway Terminal was an unofficial entrance to Storyville. Its likeness will greet visitors entering the exhibition, as well. Learn more about New Orleans's notorious legal red-light district in this exhibition that revives some of the sights and sounds of Storyville. #madamsandmusic #storyville #visitthnoc

RepostBy @visit_thnoc: "It's #moviemonday, and today we go back to the 1966 funeral second line for trumpet player Avery "Kid" Howard, which took place on the streets of Gentilly. Leading the band in the black suit, hat, bow tie, and white sash is jazz legend Danny Barker, who would go on to spark a rejuvenation of the New Orleans brass band tradition in the 1970s through his involvement in the Fairview Baptist Church Christian Band. His autobiography, "A Life in Jazz," in which he shares decades of stories of his life and music, was recently re-published in a new, illustrated edition by #THNOC. Details on the book and Barker himself can be found in our link in profile. #ALifeinJazz #dannybarker #jazzfuneral"

Today is our annual history symposium, one of my favorite days of the year. Every year we cover a different topic related to the history of New Orleans. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the closing of Storyville, our legendary red light district, and the release of the first jazz recording. #thnoc #NewOrleans #history #museums #jazz

On some occasions—rare ones, mind you—a #THNOC employee drops their earnest demeanor to take simple pleasure in their surroundings. Today, Marketing Associate Anne Robichaux replicated an interesting "portrait" in our holdings that we sometimes refer to as "Kitty in a Boot." The piece, on view in THNOC's executive suite, was painted by George David Coulon and goes by the official title of "Puss-in-Boots." Coulon was a French-born artist who became an important painter and documenter on the New Orleans art scene in the 19th century. Tomorrow, we promise to return with a more sober take on history. Until then, we will, without reservation, celebrate this most joyous work of art. Shame on us. #kittyinaboot #catsofinstagram #visitthnoc

The oldest home in the French Quarter is not a creole cottage or townhouse, but rather a West Indies plantation style home.
The Ossorno House was originally built in Bayou St John, where this style of home is more typical, and dismantled & relocated to the edge of the French Quarter in the early 1790's.
Located on the 900 block of Governor Nicholls, the home gets its name from owner Josquin Ossorno, a Spanish colonial military officer stationed in New Orleans in the late 18th century.
The home was recently sold for $2,600,000 after being listed in average condition.
I look forward to seeing how the new owners restore this gorgeous piece of local history.

Longue Vue Home and Gardens is a classical revival home located in the Lakewood neighborhood of New Orleans.
Built in 1939 as the primary residence of Edgar Stern, a prominent local cotton merchant, and Edith Rosenwald Stern, daughter of Julius Rosenwald who owned Sears department store.
The home was built with the intention that when it's owners passed, the house, all of its furnishings and art, and gardens would all be turned into a museum.
If this oak-flanked driveway looks familiar, that is because it was modeled after #oakalleyplantation in Vacherie Louisiana.

The table is set for "A Historic Storyville Dinner," the first collaboration between @tableau_nola and #THNOC on October 11. Dine on a six-course feast inspired by historic menus from our holdings, and sip on libations from the era, all while learning the history of the District from THNOC's Pamela Arceneaux, author of "Guidebooks to Sin" and drinks historian Elizabeth Pearce. Tickets are available now, and the early bird rate of $85 ends Wednesday, September 20! The price includes all food and drinks plus gratuity, and the event will take place at Tableau, 616 St. Peter Street. Guests must be 21 or older to attend.

One year ago today, we posted our first photo on Instagram (and here it is!). On this #Instaversary and for our 300th post(!), we want to thank all of our followers who have joined us on this ride and who have, hopefully, learned a thing or two about #THNOC and this fascinating place we call home. Through our exhibitions, programs, free research center, and publications, The Historic New Orleans Collection's mission is to make the stories from our past accessible to anyone with a curiosity of the history and culture of the region. We hope you continue to enjoy our feed and come to the French Quarter soon to #visitthnoc. #frenchquarter #historymuseum

While Labor Day is just another day off for many Americans now, it arises from the struggles and lives of real people. The national holiday is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers who have contributed to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country. This compilation of video footage from THNOC’s holdings shows Louisiana laborers throughout the 20th century, from farms and fields to the port of New Orleans and Gulf of Mexico. #laborday #louisianahistory #visitthnoc

The @visit_thnoc exhibit on #Storyville helps tell the story of New Orleans' red light district. Check out the first of their four-part series. #linkinbio #TheNewOrleans100 #BeInThatNumber

#Reposting @visit_thnoc with @instarepost_app -- Have you seen the new @dixiebrewco commercial? You probably noticed this footage of a Mardi Gras Indian sipping from his can during a parade. This clip is from #THNOC's holdings and was shot by photographer Jules Cahn. We think it's a fitting bit for this #thirstythursday! #dixiebeer #visitthnoc @chericeharrisonnelson .

Chef John Martin inspects a few New Orleans menus from the 1880s to the 1920s at the Williams Research Center with the help of #THNOC's Amanda McFillen. Martin is crafting a special menu for an upcoming collaboration between @tableau_nola and THNOC, based on delicacies served in the city around the era of Storyville (1898–1917). Stay tuned for updates on this exciting development. #WRCwednesdays #tableaunola #visitthnoc

Strut through your Thursday with jazz legend Danny Barker and children from the Fairview Baptist Church Christian Band. Shown is Barker playing with youngsters Donald Polk (cornet), Byron Washington (trumpet), and Jerry (bass drum) and Deanna Anderson (dancing). Barker's leadership of the Fairview Band reinvigorated the brass band tradition in New Orleans and influenced a new generation of musicians. This video also happened to be shot in the Brulatour courtyard at 520 Royal Street, which #THNOC is currently renovating as part of its third campus to open in 2018. #brassband #jazzmusic #visitthnoc
