John Magill is a historian and curator for The Historic New Orleans Collection. This podcast is John's sixth in a six-part series about New Orleans history. However, our listeners have expressed great interest in the topic. Therefore, we will extend this series of podcasts about the city's fascinating and unique history. John's focus this month is on preservation in the French Quarter. According to John, preservation efforts did not have a leg to stand on in the 19th century. Fortunately, however, by the early 20th century interest in preserving old buildings in New Orleans had revived. Listen as John describes some of the the city's historic buildings that were demolished and tells us about some that were preserved and restored. Listen to the podcast here
