The 2006 NOAHH purchase of 8.1 acres of land from the New Orleans School Board, the former site of Kohn Junior High School, has now become the site of the Musicians’ Village. Construction has been completed on all 72 single family homes, 5 elder-friendly doubles, the toddler-friendly pocket park and The Ellis Marsalis Center for Music.

As one of the many musicians who was nurtured by the vibrant cultural environment in New Orleans, I cannot overstate the importance of the Musicians’ Village.  Please lend your support for those artists eager to call New Orleans home again, and for those in future generations who will be the beneficiaries of their knowledge.- Branford Marsalis
