The Basilica on Jackson Square

Category: History: U.S. Louisiana

Author: Leonard Huber & Samuel Wilson Jr

Copyright/published Year: 1972 by St Louis Cathedral,

Binding: paperback

The St. Louis Cathedral is one of New Orleans' most notable landmarks. This venerable building, its triple steeples towering above its historic neighbors - the Cabildo and the Presbytere - looks down benignly on the green of the square and General Andrew Jackson on his bronze horse and on the block-long Pontalba with their lacy ironwork galleries. Truly, this is the heart of New Orleans. Since 1727 New Orleanians have worshipped in churches on the site. Half a dozen years earlier, the French engineer, Adrien De Pauger, who arrived in the newly founded city on March 2, 1721, designated this site for a church in conformity with the plan of the Engineer-in-Chief of Louisiana, LeBlond de la Tour, who was at the capital, Biloxi.
