Surrounded by construction - navigate to Metarie and Canal or The Fireman's Charitable and Benevolent Foundation for entrance (16 Nov 2017)
This beautiful cemetery had been here since 1852, and has hundreds of impressive looking statues, crypts, and historic tombs. They offer services to help commemorate the life of a loved one, as well as assistance with genealogy of those who have been laid to rest here. Many noted public officials have been buried here. The grounds are clean and very well maintained. It's worth a visit if you're in the area.
It's a cemetery, so...pretty quiet. I went there because I was doing my genealogy and found on line the location of my great grandmother, and a couple of great aunt's graves. Using the download able map, I found them easily. Well kept. Interesting statues from the 1800's.
What can you say about a cementry? Well this one is amazing. It is something for everyone whether you want some horror, history or just walk a little bit you are right.
