The transformation from an urban wasteland to what many have called “the SoHo of the South” began in 1976 with the opening of the Contemporary Arts Center. The 10,000-square-foot complex is still entertaining and enlightening visitors today with cutting-edge artwork and an eclectic array of music, theater and dance performances. Through this opening, the art community saw massive potential in the neighborhood. The open spaces of the warehouses were perfect for creating, storing, and displaying artwork. Today, more than 25 galleries call the district home. Museums also put the roomy warehouses to good use, as highlighted by The National World War II Museum. Other developments include a number of restaurants and cafés serving everything from gourmet dishes to traditional Cajun favorites. The original Emeril's was one of the first to call this area home over a decade ago.
