The Bouligny Improvement Association is an Uptown neighborhood association, incorporated in 1964, with boundaries of Napoleon Avenue to Upperline and St. Charles Avenue to Magazine Street. It was founded to protect and maintain the area as an attractive and permanent residential section in Uptown New Orleans, to enforce zoning, promote safety, encourage green space and beautification.
The Louisiana Landmarks Society was founded in 1950 and incorporated in 1953. The organization has several missions. First is to ensure the safety and survival of Louisiana landmarks and to preserve old neighborhoods and districts as desirable, attractive areas in which to live and work. Second is to preserve and maintain its headquarters and museum, the (late 18th Century – or early 19th Century) Pitot House on Bayou St. John and share this unique and rare example of Creole colonial style architecture with the public.
