Gallier Hall was completed in 1853 and was used by the city of New Orleans as a city hall. This building has a significant part of history being used as the city hall for well over a hundred years. This building is used today as a reception hall as well as a theatre called the Ty Tracy Theatre. For some people this building may seem even more familiar. This is because every year the VIPs of the Mardi Gras are seated at the Gallier Hall while the parade usually stops and plays in front of it. This building seems quite simple with its fluted Ionic columns, but at the same time quite impactful and unique for when it was built.
