lowernine.org offers individual and small group neighborhood tours. The tour includes stops at Mississippi and Industrial Canal levees, a visit to one of lowernine.org’s open work sites and sights like Fats Domino’s home (pre-K). This tour is offered in exchange for a tax-deductible donation to our organization and all proceeds go to rebuilding homes in the Lower Ninth Ward. We schedule tours as reservations are made so the shorter the notice the harder it is to guarantee we’ll have availability- it’s a good idea to book tours a week in advance.
