Steeped in tradition, chances are if your people are from the Carrollton area, you still live there. Speaking of tradition, you will find classic New Orleans houses in this area – raised cottages, single & double shotguns, but you will also find new construction and lots of renovations going on. This area has seen a resurgence of life – new restaurants, bars, the Oak Street Po-Boy festival just to name a few things. But don’t worry the landmarks are also still there, we are looking at you Camellia Grill, Carrollton Streetcar Barn, and Maple Leaf Bar.
Palmer Park is an impressive park in the neighborhood – giving green space, a playground, and even hosts an art market once a month!

Don’t worry even though there is a lot of new development in the areas, you will still be charmed by the live oaks along Carrollton Avenue and the sights & sounds of the river, the railroad, and the streetcar.
