ZOOM based experience. Explore the elegant decay of an above ground cemetery. The focus of this tour is the sacred space of St. Louis #1 Cemetery.
NOLA VIRTUAL LAFAYETTE CEMETERY TOUR
This “city-of-the-dead” is visually and historically alluring. Established in what was known as the City of Lafayette, now the heart of the Garden District, it remains non-segregated and non-denominational. The city manages this cemetery along with others throughout the parish, which is a completely different entity than that of St. Louis #1.
Movie buffs familiar with Double Jeopardy will recognize the architecture. This hour-long tour discusses the burial traditions while showcasing wall vaults, family tombs and society tombs.
