An Introduction to the WYES New Orleans Tricentennial Moments Series

As we approached the celebration of the 300th Anniversary, or Tricentennial, of the founding of New Orleans in 2018, our local PBS affiliate known as WYES Television created this series called NEW ORLEANS TRICENTENNIAL MOMENTS to commemorate so much of our city’s culture and history.  There are 206 different videos, lasting from 2 – 4 minutes each, on a wide variety of topics through all three centuries.

This series was made possible by The Meraux Foundation and presented in association with our great friends at The Historic New Orleans Collection.  Our thanks to Robin Cooper and Allan Pizzato at WYES for allowing us to share this history we have in common through our family’s website.
