Local Gold and Silver Dealers in New Orleans, LA
Founded in 1718 and named after Philippe II, Duke of Orleans, New Orleans is a consolidated city-parish located near the mouth of the Mississippi River in the southern part of the state of Louisiana. The city has an estimated population of 393,000 and a metro area population of almost 1.3 million.
The city is well known for its distinct cuisine, music, and dialect. In addition, New Orleans is the primary destination for the annual Mardi Gras celebration. Previously a territorial capital of the French Louisiana territory, New Orleans was at one point the third most populous city in the U.S.
A significant part of New Orleans was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, partly due to its many below sea level areas. Its population decreased by nearly 50% but in the aftermath, a major rebuilding effort has been underway, and the population has rebounded somewhat. The city is also known as the site of one of the most important battles in American History, the Battle of New Orleans in 1812.
During the conflict with Britain during the War of 1812, future president Andrew Jackson successfully defended the city from advancing British forces. During the American Civil War, the city was spared from major damage due to the fact that it was captured and occupied by Union forces early in the war.
From an economic standpoint, New Orleans features one of the world’s largest and busiest ports and the region accounts for a substantial portion of the nation’s oil refining and petrochemical production. The city is also home to a number of major higher learning institutions, including Tulane University, Loyola University, Xavier University and the University of New Orleans.
