Julia Jump 2018
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.
