This Greek Revival building was first used as a U.S. and Confederate Mint in 1835 and produced money for the Federal Government until 1909. Throughout its existence it has served many purposes, including minting money and housing soldiers for the Confederate Government during the Civil War. Today Old U.S. Mint is home to jazz and Mardi Gras exhibits as well as important historical archives. The mint also houses two gift shops, the Coin Vault and Louisiana Music Factory, which sell unique items. Own one of these as a remembrance of your visit!
