WALKING TOUR with Joseph Makkos

An excursion into the Big Easy's legacy of print media, the Print History Tour, encompasses an insight-packed walking tour of New Orleans’ prize historical archive—the city itself. Hitting the streets in a brisk 90-minute walk through the New Orleans Central Business District and French Quarter, guests will learn about the untold and unexpected history of New Orleans as the South’s original hub for print. Points on the tour will highlight the industry-leading newspapers and presses along with renegade printers that created the material culture of New Orleans in the late 19th & 20th centuries. (Don't forget to wear comfortable shoes for this traverse across the cobblestoned centuries!)


Tour participants should meet on the first level across from the bank of elevators, in front of the Spirits bar. Please be early, as tours will leave on time. Look for the tour leader’s purple Mardi Gras hat.

Max participants: 20
