The Williamburg Gardens in New Orleans, Louisiana, will open its doors in spring 2017, with a new location in the city’s heart, officials announced on Tuesday.
The city has not announced a new home yet for the Williams, but they’re expected to move in by the end of this year.
The gardens were the first to be built in the U.S. in 1851.
The Willliamsburg Garden is one of the most popular gardens in the United States and is considered a model of urban gardening.
“This new location will provide a beautiful and welcoming environment for the gardens community and provide the community with a convenient location to store, process and distribute their produce,” New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said in a statement.
The new Williamshburg Gardens will also offer more natural lighting, a central courtyard, a terrace, and a new green roof.
New Orleans will be home to the new Willliamburg Gardens.
The William’s were built in 1856 and originally housed about 300 people.
Today they house about 3,000 people, according to the city.
They were once home to Thomas Jefferson and other Founding Fathers.
