The French Quarter is the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans. The name is related to changes in the city with American immigration after the 1803 Louisiana Purchase. Most of the  historic buildings were constructed either in the late 18th century, during the city's period of Spanish rule, or were built during the first half of the 19th century, after  U.S. annexation and statehood.

The district has been designated as a National Historic Landmark with numerous buildings deemed significant.
