John Magill is a New Orleans historian with an encyclopedic knowledge of our city’s history. In this podcast, John explores the fascinating history of the early expansion of New Orleans as he discusses the city’s early suburbanization. According to John, in the 19th and early 20th centuries, suburbanization had a different meaning than it does today. He explains that in the early days of New Orleans, suburbanization meant "expansion beyond it’s original core.” John points out that Jefferson Parish dates back to 1825, and Felicity Street in Uptown New Orleans was the dividing line between Jefferson and Orleans parishes. One of New Orleans' earliest suburbs was the City of Carrollton that was subdivided in the early 1830s; the Carrollton Railroad line connected Carrollton to New Orleans. Further up river from the City of Carrollton was Kennerville, founded in 1855 by Mr. Philip Minor Kenner. The Kenner railroad ran from Kennerville to Canal Street, connecting the suburb with New Orleans.
