A look at Gretna’s Maypole event, new books in the GACC library and a profile of 19th century German surveyor Charles Frederic Zimpel, all in the June 2021 newsletter.
Step inside the GACC Museum and go back in time to 1721, when German immigrants first settled in Louisiana. You’ll learn about the waves of German pioneers that followed them to establish homes, farms and businesses across the river from New Orleans. Entry is free of charge to our museum, open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday.
Honoring the German immigrants who founded Gretna, Louisiana, in 1836 and their contribution to Louisiana’s history is the mission of the German-American Cultural Center & Museum.
