“Originally known for its sprawling gardens surrounding ornate Greek Revival and Italianate mansions, the Garden District has gradually become known for its unique architecture. Today, the tree-filled streets of the Garden District are home to hotels, restaurants and shops, as well as grand southern mansions – some still single-family owned. The Garden District has also served as home to many celebrities over the years including Anne Rice, Trent Reznor, Nicholas Cage, Sandra Bullock and John Goodman.
