Architect James Gallier Sr designed this monumental Greek-revival structure, which was dedicated in 1853. It served as New Orleans’ city hall until the 1950s, and far outclasses the city’s current city hall (a few blocks away). Today the building is used for private functions and VIP funerals (both Confederate president Jefferson Davis and homegrown R&B legend Ernie K-Doe have lain in state here – only in New Orleans) and is a focal point for Mardi Gras parades, most of which promenade past the grandstand that is put up along St Charles Ave.
