The Fontaine Building

—The Marketplace at Jackson Brewery —

Constructed in 1868 by renowned New Orleans architect/builder Henry Howard, this building was comprised of six bonded warehouses, serving the thriving maritime commerce of the French Quarter Riverfront throughout the late 18th and early 20th centuries.

The building was purchased in 1941 by Edgar Benjamin Fontaine, and owned by succeeding generations of the Fontaine family. In 1949, it was leased to the Jackson Brewing Company, and served for the next quarter century as the shipping warehouse for the largest independent brewery in the south.

In 1987 the building was converted to retail use by the Jackson Brewery Development Corporation, in an award winning adaptive re-use of this historic former warehouse property.
