Julia Jump 2018

Julia Jump presented by Continental Underwriters, Ltd./Mr. and Mrs. H. Elder Brown, Jr.


For 41 years, the Preservation Resource Center’s Julia Jump has been one of the city’s most exciting Spring events. What started as a small campaign to save Julia Row has evolved into our annual major fundraiser, supporting the preservation of historic architecture and neighborhoods city-wide.  This year’s Jump, chaired by Melissa Eversmeyer and Shon Cowan Baker, will take place on Friday, March 16, 2018 at The NOCCA Institute’s Solomon Family Hall (2800 Chartres Street).  Join us for an evening of exceptional cuisine, a fantastic silent auction, and live music by NOCCA students and Bon Bon Vivant, for a 1920s-themed soirée.

We are thrilled to celebrate our 41st Julia Jump in an incredible example of adaptive reuse, and to shed more light on the critically important historical event which happened a few steps away on Press street and Royal – the arrest of Homer Plessy, which led to the landmark Plessy v. Ferguson case that challenged the Separate Car Act.


The silent auction is now live! Browse and bid on fabulous auction items here.

  • Improve quality of life and prevent community displacement through our Rebuilding Together program by making critical home repairs for low-income homeowners.
  • Advocate for historic architecture and neighborhoods at the local, state and federal levels – including the prevention of unnecessary demolition of local historic buildings and protecting vital incentives like the Federal Historic Tax Credit.
  • Safeguard historic structures with our Preservation Easements program.
