St. Augustine Church is the oldest African American Catholic Parish in the United States
The parish was founded in 1841 under Bishop Antoine Blanc. Established by free people of color, who also bought pews for slaves, it is the oldest African-American Catholic parish in the nation. It was one of the first of 26 sites designated on the Louisiana African American Heritage Trail. The property on which St. Augustine stands was once part of the Claude Treme plantation. The church is located on Henriette Delille Street (formerly St. Claude Avenue) at Governor Nicholls Street, a block from North Rampart Street and the French Quarter.Concerts are free and open to the public with off-street parking in the church yard. Visitors and locals can enjoy the many cultural experiences of Treme during their visit, including the Backstreet Cultural Museum, New Orleans African American Museum (Bambara: From Mali, Africa to French Colonial America; and Drapetomania: A Disease Called Freedom, both exhibits on display through December), and Treme’s new coffeehouse/café – Café Treme.
