Jackson Square was built in 1721 to be an open plaza and meeting ground for the people of New Orleans, then called the Place d'Armes. Following the 1815 Battle of New Orleans, of which Major General Andrew Jackson was the hero, the square was named in his honor. In 1856 the statue (by sculptor Clark Mills) was installed.
Jackson Square has been a National Historic Landmark since 1960.
