Preservation Resource Center’s 1850’s Leeds – Davis Building located at 923 Tchoupitoulas Street is just three blocks away from the convention center & close to other destinations including the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the National World War II Museum.
Distinguished by its extraordinary cast-iron Gothic Revival facade, the three-story building was designed by the firm of Gallier and Turpin for the Leeds Iron Foundry and erected in 1853. Rated purple by the Historic District Landmarks Commission, the building is judged to be of national architectural significance.
The open atrium boasts plenty of natural light with floor to ceiling windows. Exhibits on New Orleans historic districts and architecture give visitors a glimpse into New Orleans culture and neighborhoods.
The Preservation Resource Center can accommodate up to 300 people for a cocktail event & can also host sit-down dinners for gatherings of up to 75 people. All events are exclusively catered by James Beard award winning Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski’s Louisiana cuisine.
