This site is in the area which has been called the birthplace of jazz. It was a center of social clubs, saloons, honky-tonks, bakeries, pawn shops, and barber shops where the musicians met during the early years of the twentieth-century. It was called Back-of-Town.

The Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club was located in this block facing Perdido Street.

Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Bunk Johnson and many others played in these clubs as did Buddy Bolden who, with his band, played a major role in the development of jazz.
