Historic New Orleans Collection

Five blocks into the French Quarter on Royal Street you'll find a museum, research center, and publisher dedicated to preserving the history of New Orleans and the Gulf South region. Although this institution is nearly 50 years old, it's often passed by tourists and locals alike.

On this week's Notes from New Orleans, Sharon Litwin speaks with the director of this overlooked French  Quarter cultural experience.

As Louisiana begins marking its 200th anniversary of statehood, the Historic New Orleans Collection is planning events to highlight milestones, including a series of lectures to set the stage for reviewing Louisiana history while looking to the future.
