Record Group 408 comprises the resources used for the Friends of Cabildo (FOC) New Orleans Architecture series. Seven books were created between 1971 (Volume 1: New Orleans Architecture: Lower Garden District
) and 1989 (Volume VII: New Orleans Architecture: Jefferson City
). The collection includes research notes generated by the editors and authors of this book series and is arranged by volume, then alphabetically by street addresses of homes, businesses, and apartments throughout New Orleans. The collection is made up of photographs, Photostats, blueprints, correspondence, and maps. Volunteers will be asked to create a finding aid for each box, which will then be compiled into a Finding Aid for the entire collection. Volunteers are asked to bring a personal laptop or tablet with them to the repository.
Number of Volunteers Needed:
The Old U.S. Mint, Louisiana Historical Center, is located at 400 Esplanade Avenue. Take the Riverfront Streetcar (from Poydras Street near the Hilton) to the French Market stop.
