9 YEARS AGO TODAY:
Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana as a Category 3 storm on August 29, 2005. Over 1800 lost their lives in the storm, and Katrina ultimately caused over $80 billion of damage. New Orleans, where several levees failed to contain rising waters from the storm, bore the worst of the devastation. Hurricane Katrina left much of the city under water with water approximately 12 feet high in some areas. Officials had called for a mandatory evacuation, but many resident remained in the city and had to be rescued from flooded homes and hotels.
Come Discover why The Cornstalk continues to be one of the Hotels with the highest Guest Satisfaction records in New Orleans. Our gorgeous French Quarter Victorian is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is equally as famous as a tourist attraction as it is a Hotel. The 'cornstalk' fence was erected in 1840 by the owner, recently married, who wanted to ease his bride's homesickness for her home state of Iowa. The original owner, Judge Francois Xavier Martin, was Chief Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court and the author of the first history of Louisiana.
The Cornstalk Hotel has attracted many famous guests that include; Bill & Hillary Clinton, and even the "King" himself...Elvis graced the halls of The Cornstalk.
