Ways to ENGAGE

Edith and Edgar Stern, the founders of Longue Vue, were devoted to bettering the lives of the citizens of New Orleans. As such, they were major contributors to causes that advanced the City, committing their wealth and resources to voting rights and equal access to sophisticated healthcare, housing, and superior educational opportunities.

As stewards of the Stern family legacy, all of us at Longue Vue take our responsibility to our community seriously. Whether you join us for a program or tour, to volunteer, to picnic with your family, or just to find respite and wellness in our gardens, we want every member of the New Orleans community to find a time and a reason to make Longue Vue your own.

See below for a list of recurring programs and opportunities for engagement here at Longue Vue beyond our daily House and Garden Tour offerings.
