Infectious outbreaks have plagued New Orleans for centuries. If you’re a bit curious about the strange history of our city, you’ll want to look no further than our relationship with disease.
We’ll take you on a historic and strange tour of the squalid conditions of mass disease that New Orleans has encountered. We’ll also tell inspiring tales of coping with filthy and foul conditions.
Walk with us to uncover how epidemics such as Yellow Fever, Cholera, and more have infected our inhabitants and how our resilient city recovered. We’ll talk about odd medical practices of long ago, including how voodoo and religion played a part in trying to contain the “uncontainable.”
