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.
