The Historic New Orleans Collection
Support comes from The Historic New Orleans Collection, the city’s premiere history museum, located at five twenty Royal Street in the heart of the French Quarter.
Check out their online publication called First Draft. Its’ a combination blog and online exhibition space. hnoc.org/firstdraft
From December 8, 2023 – May 10, 2024 check out their exhibit titled A Mystic Brotherhood: Fraternal Orders of New Orleans. For centuries, Freemasons, Odd Fellows, and other similar fraternal organizations have contributed to the network of benevolent and mutual aid societies that cradle New Orleans’s social, cultural, and civic life.
Through objects and images drawn from THNOC’s collections, the new exhibition explores the sometimes-hidden history of these organizations and illuminates how they helped shape today’s city.
Additionally, their permanent exhibit on French Quarter life is an immersive experience worth a visit. As always, the Historic New Orleans Collection is free. It’s somehow continues to fly under the radar, but should not be missed.
