Beams and Brews presented by Inhab goes to Pontchartrain Park
Visit a classic Pontchartrain Park home being thoughtfully renovated by Randall Duplessis and his fiancé Brittney Jordan, both of whose families were among the original residents of this historic neighborhood in the 1950s. Along with the Pontchartrain Park Neighborhood Association, PRC recently submitted a National Register nomination for the neighborhood to recognize the unique role it played in suburban-style expansion and the achievement of homeownership among African Americans during segregation. Guests of honor at this event will include longtime residents who lovingly rebuilt their homes after the neighborhood flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Beer provided by Royal Brewery and craft cocktail provided by Twelve Mile Limit.
Did you or someone you know grow up in Pontchartrain Park? We want to hear your stories for the Neighborhood Memory Project! To tell the full story of Pontchartrain Park, the PRC would love to hear from longtime residents or former residents willing to share their stories, photographs and memories of growing up in this neighborhood. You are invited to attend this tour of this house under renovation and share your memories with us. Your stories will be recorded and made available to the public in an archive about the neighborhood.
