Click here to register in advance for this free Zoom webinar
The latest book in the Friends of the Cabildo’s New Orleans Architecture series focuses on the remarkable architectural history of the former city of Carrollton, once the seat of Jefferson Parish that was annexed into New Orleans. The area is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Join architect, architectural historian and author Robert J. Cangelosi Jr. in a virtual discussion of the book, New Orleans Architecture: Volume IX, which chronicles Carrollton’s development. The book’s Building Index features the original owners, dates of construction, costs, designers and builders for many of the structures erected in Carrollton since its founding. In the Selective Architectural Inventory, the book’s final section, Cangelosi explores the history of nearly 420 historic homes and buildings in Carrollton, and shares photographs, detailed sales records and information on a variety of architectural styles.
In this live, virtual program, Cangelosi will discuss the book and answer questions from the audience.
The book is for sale on PRC’s website store.
