The Baroness de Pontalba & the Rise of Jackson Square

The Baroness de Pontalba & the Rise of Jackson Square

This tricentennial exhibition organized by the Louisiana State Museum and guest curator Randolph Delehanty, Ph.D. tells the city-defining story of Don Andrés Almonester and his formidable daughter, Micaela, the Baroness de Pontalba. It shows how a father’s philanthropy and a daughter’s determination created the urban heart and the architectural look of Old New Orleans. The exhibit draws on the landmark buildings and rich collections of the Louisiana State Museum, portraits, treasures from the Pontalba Family château in France, loans from other collections, and historic and commissioned photographs to revisualize New Orleans’ iconic urban core: Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, the Presbytère, and the twin Pontalba Buildings.
