Welcome to History from Home, The Historic New Orleans Collection’s online portal for curious explorers and dedicated students of the past. While we’re stuck at home during the COVID-19 outbreak, that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop preserving and presenting the history of New Orleans and the Gulf region. This page is your entry to a variety of THNOC projects, from educational resources for families, research tools for students and scholars, to fascinating stories from the archive. We’ll be adding to this page regularly, so check back to see what’s new.
