Warehouse District
_______________________________

The Warehouse District, also known today as the New Orleans Arts District, was originally established as an industrial area in the 19th century to store coffee, produce & grains shipped through the Port of New Orleans.  As commerce, trade, and industry practices evolved over time, the area's prosperity faded, and the once busy streets of the Warehouse District became very quiet.
In 1976 with the opening of the Contemporary Arts Center a 10,000-square-foot complex to house artwork, music, theater, and dance performances the transformation began.  Many people saw much potential in this area with its over abundance of space from the old warehouses that artist began using these massive spaces to house and display art, open galleries and museums.
Today almost 30 art galleries, The World War II Museum, The Children's Museum, many restaurants and bars call the Warehouse District home.  As far as residential the Warehouse District offers that urban feel with many converted lofts and industrial decor.  Its a hip professional area just minutes from the CBD, French Quarter and garden District.
