|Plaque in the New Orleans Wax Museum|
The wax museum, officially known as the Museé Conti, is full of recreations of great moments in the city's history. There are some other things, too, but it's going to take weeks for us to get to them. In the meantime, here is exhibit No. 2. A City Is Planned:
|The planning of New Orleans|
If you want to know the truth, ask me over breakfast. Then, I'll tell you that the city was laid out by Adrien de Pauger, and that he selected many of the street names in the French Quarter, too.

You'll agree, too.
Come experience it for yourself.
À votre santé,
