The color rating indicates the historical and/or architectural significance of each property under the VCC’s jurisdiction.
The Vieux Carré Virtual Library is a map-based electronic archive of countless Vieux Carré Commission images, documents, and records. It is designed to preserve historic artifacts from deterioration and natural disaster, while also connecting the public to the inner archives of the VCC as an integrative educational and planning resource.
This project is an ongoing initiative of the Vieux Carré Commission Foundation. The Foundation's mission is to support the VCC in preserving and protecting not only the French Quarter’s invaluable historic architectural heritage, but also its tout ensemble, or its quaint and distinctive character and ambiance.
