About Algiers

Sprawling along the Mississippi River to the east of the French Quarter, Algiers is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in New Orleans. It comprises one of 17 wards in the “Big Easy”, with some impressive architecture to explore and a laid-back, old world charm.

Algiers Point, just across the river from the French Quarter, is the oldest part of the ward and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. An extensive fire in 1895 destroyed many of its original buildings, with most of its current Victorian-style architecture dating from its rebuilding period. The Romanesque Old Courthouse is one of Algiers’ most distinctive buildings, while many of its churches, including the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran and Mount Olivet Episcopal, are also listed 19th century National Historic Landmarks. The neighbourhood still has an old Louisiana town feel about it, with charming boutiques to explore and an excellent choice of restaurants. It’s connected with New Orleans’ downtown area by the Canal Street Ferry, which is the oldest continuously operating ferry in North America, and the views across the city are worth the journey itself.

The ferry is the most convenient and picturesque way to access the neighbourhood from New Orleans’ French Quarter, with frequent departures throughout the day. Public buses also extend across the Crescent City Connection bridge and through Algiers’ eastern reaches.

The land on which Algiers lies was granted to plantation owner Jean Baptiste Le Moyne in 1719, and it was used throughout the 18th century as a holding area for African slaves before being sold on the other side of the Mississippi River. The origins of its name are in dispute, however, with some believing it was a joke comparing its proximity to the city with France’s proximity to Algeria, while others state that a returned soldier saw similarities in its landscape to the North African country.
