About Duelling Oak

The historic Duelling Oak in New Orleans City Park is steeped in lore and legend, once serving as the site for duels among the city’s gentlemen settling their disputes under its massive branches. Today, it stands as a silent witness to the past, offering visitors a glimpse into the city’s colourful history.

Best time/season to visit: Accessible year-round, but particularly intriguing during fall when guided historical tours often recount the tales of its duelling past.
