Our Mission and Vision

Historic Faubourg Treme Association was founded in 2006 to support the architecture,

culture, and history of Treme and fight blight, crime, and grime.  

 

HFTA envisions a Treme that has thriving commercial corridors along Basin, North

Claiborne, Rampart, and St. Bernard Avenue that showcases Treme's rich live music,

visual arts, and performing arts culture with neighborhood friendly corner retail that

makes Treme one of the most walkable neighborhoods in New Orleans.

 

 

 

Our Boundaries

 

Historic Faubourg Treme Association's boundaries are between North Rampart street and North Claiborne Avenue and then from St. Bernard Avenue and Basin Street/Orleans Avenue. Our bordering neighborhoods are French Quarter, Marigny, the 7th ward, and Mid-City.  We are walking distance to downtown New Orleans, the Biomedical district, Theater district, and the major sport complexes where the Saints and Pelicans play. 

 

The neighborhood has numerous sites on the Louisiana African American trail as it is known as the oldest African-American neighborhood that was settled by free people of color.  The neighborhood is experiencing a renaissance after the once thriving community suffered a series of blows from public works decisions in the 60's where the beautiful tree lined boulevard shown in the background was demolished to build the I-10 freeway.  The neighborhood also suffered after numerous homes were demolished to build an urban park, now Armstrong Park, with an immene surface parking lot facing the Treme neighborhood and beautiful greenery facing the French Quarter neighborhood.

 

Because Treme is a neighborhood that didn't see much flooding and its close proximity  to downtown, many residents and tourists alike have rediscovered this jewel which is creating a renaissance of new businesses, renovated homes, and young families settling.
