Gentilly Terrace and Gardens
Is a neighborhood in New Orleans which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Begun in 1909 as a getaway community from the main part of the city, Gentilly Terrace was developed with a unique-to-New Orleans flavor of architecture.
With a mix of California bungalow, English Tudor, and Spanish hacienda styles, the ambiance in the Terrace is a refreshing departure from the din of the city. With a diverse mixture of residential, commercial, and schools Gentilly Terrace and Gardens is an attractive place for all who call it home.
