Vieux Carré: French or Spanish?

Audio Interview with The Historic New Orleans Collection's John Magill

John Magill is a curator and historian at The Historic New Orleans Collection. This podcast is the first in a series of six interviews with John. Each month, John will share some very interesting historical facts about New Orleans. In this first podcast, John describes the Spanish influence in the French Quarter and explains that most architecture in the Vieux Carré is Spanish, not French. John also tells us about The Historic New Orleans Collection's latest exhibit, Furnishing Louisiana: 1735–1835. The Collection is located at 533 Royal Street in the French Quarter.
