Noted for its historic art deco design from 1933, New Orleans' Lakefront Airport was a stop for Amelia Earhart on her final, fateful attempt to fly around the world in 1937. The building was largely altered as a nuclear fallout shelter in 1964, covering most if its original design. Nineteen million dollars in federal funds were used for the restoration after it was flooded during Hurricane Katrina.
