Centrally located Old Jefferson sits just outside New Orleans in Jefferson Parish and offers the convenience of big city living with the quaintness of a tight-knit community. Raised bungalows and ranch-style homes with plenty of yard space dot the quiet, tree-lined streets.
Bounded by Earhart Expressway and the Mississippi River, the neighborhood offers easy access to outdoor highlights including Jefferson Park and the Mississippi River Trail. Walk, run or bike on the levee path to Audubon Park and Zoo! Also nearby is the Huey P. Long Bridge to the West Bank or head north on the Causeway across Lake Pontchartrain.
Restaurants and nightlife in New Orleans’ Carrollton neighborhood are just minutes away, but why leave Old Jefferson? Popular eateries including Crabby Jack’s, Rivershack Tavern and Haydel’s Bakery are considered culinary institutions in the area.
Four public schools serve the children of this community. Additionally, due to its proximity to Ochsner Medical Center, Old Jefferson attracts employees looking to live close to the state-of-the-art campus.
