Degas-Bayou St. John House

History of Esplanade Avenue

  • Esplanade Street Sign

In the 19th century, Esplanade Avenue in New Orleans where Degas House is located was an important route for trade. It also functioned as a “Millionaire’s Row” for the Louisiana Creole section of the city. Today it is a beautiful oak tree lined avenue which runs from the Mississippi River to Carrollton Avenue at City Park. Much of Esplanade Avenue is residential and many of the 19th century mansions still line the street. Near the river, on one side of Esplanade is the world-famous French Quarter. Cross Esplanade at Decatur Street and you will be in the up-and-coming Frenchman Street area where you can find live bands playing anything from jazz to rock to reggae.

Esplanade Avenue goes through the area known alternatively as “Faubourg St. John” or “Esplanade Ridge”. Degas House is located in this section.
