Venue Setting

The Race + Religious property is a relic of an older Louisiana, of which few glimmers remain. Originally within a row of three, the Greek-revival row house and four-brick thick "slave quarter" was built in 1836. A row of Creole Cottages followed in 1843, of which our Religious house remains. Constructed as tenements for middle-class families, the history of the homes is undiluted and common to the city. Located at the 500 block of the riverfront, the houses were built with bricks made of Mississippi River clay, baked along Tchoupatoulis Street, a former Indian trail. A combination of both of these properties has created our Race + Religious, comprised of three buildings and three courtyards, perfect for any indoor/outdoor event.
