5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive book on the Garden District April 16 2012
By C. Denver Mullican - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the definitive book on the Garden District. It is well researched and documented with great pictures. I give a walking tour of the Garden District and out of the eight books I have read on this area - this is by far the best. Not only does it cover the Garden District, it also gives the history of the surrounding neighborhoods and how this influenced the creation and development of this area. My only complaint is that I wish they had spent more time on Lafayette Cemetery - but this is a minor issue. Overall this is an excellent read and value.

A wonderful Coffee table book on NOLA's unique Garden District. I am a native living in Alabama so I bought this for my coffee table.
5.0 out of 5 stars Unique blend of history March 5 2014
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
You get a feel of the 'richness' in culture thru beautiful photos. Its hard to explain, having lived there for 2 years, feeling the history.
This book creates in me a "longing" for the City of New Orleans. Its been close to 30 years since I lived their,, you just have to see the book for yourself.
5.0 out of 5 stars More rigorous study than French Quarter of New Orleans by same authors Jan. 16 2014
By Jon L. Albee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book dedicated to the earliest suburb in the United States.

The Garden District developed on the southwestern edge of the French Quarter after New Orleans began to substantially "Americanize" in the 1830s. By 1860, this neighborhood had developed into the fabulously rich district we know today, with free-standing houses set on wide, wooded lots, quite different from the French Quarter's ancient Creole density.

Here we have the definitive guide to the District. The book is not an architectural catalog, but is a study of the architectural history of the District. While the photography is superb, the real feature of the book is the rich text - a careful analytical and historical consideration of the architectural styles present in the District. Together, the photography and text feature about 100 of the District's most outstanding houses and churches. Chapters are arranged chronologically, beginning in the 1830s and ending with early 20th century examples.

Certainly, this book will be considered a "coffee table" book by some, but it really is a book intended to support substantial research for architectural historians, architects, craftsmen, and local historians. The well informed casual reader will also enjoy the book.
