Jackson Square Throughout The Years.
Written by Leonard V. Huber. Published by the Friends of the Cabildo. First edition 1982.
In the midst of New Orleans's time worn Vieux Carre, near the banks of the Mississippi River is Jackson Square. This well-kept garden spot, with its greenery, its graceful walks and inviting benches, its marble statues and Old Hickory astride his bronze charger, has a certain old-fashioned charm. But Jackson Square is more than a pleasant park; it and the frame of venerable buildings which surround it, form the most historic spot in all New Orleans. This book is to give the reader glimpses into the past of this storied place.
