Efforts continue to save old Carrollton Courthouse in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The Tulane-LSU Design Partnership, a collaboration between Tulane and LSU architecture students and the Louisiana Landmarks Society, will present its ideas for documenting, restoring, preserving and re-using the old Carrollton Courthouse Thursday, Jan. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tulane's uptown campus.

Last year, the National Trust for Historic Preservation issued the 28th annual list of the America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places and the Carrollton Courthouse was on that list for 2015.

The Carrollton Courthouse is the most important remaining public building from Carrollton's days before annexation by New Orleans in 1874 and is one of the city's most significant landmarks outside of the French Quarter. After serving as a public school building for decades, it is now vacant and for sale.
