The Cypress Grove and Greenwood Cemeteries built in the 1800’s offer arare park into the historic ‘Cities of the Dead’. The Greenwood Cemetery was established by the Firemen’s Charitable and Benevolent Association after they had success with Cypress Grove Cemetery. The graves at the cemeteries consist of elaborately designed graves and beautiful mausoleums.
The cemeteries are the final resting place for firemen and prominent protestant figures from New Orleans. The landscape design and well-maintained greens add to the beauty of the place.

Cypress Grove And Greenwood Cemeteries Reviews & Ratings
Greenwood cemetery's landmark is definitely that deer statue on the top of that hill over the grave. It's beautiful, and I wish every cemetery had its own mascot or statue to distinguish what it was. The deer is also so freaking majestic.
Wonderful helpful and kind-hearted staff
Its very odd feeling to write a review about cemetery. One of my good friend is a big fan of vampire movies and TV shows, So we went to this cemetery to see various kind of sculptures, art. He thanked me a lot for taking him there, I thought may be only vampire fans can only understand that great sense of whatever he has.
This is a huge cemetery with many large monument burial vaults. The grounds are beautiful and well kept.
Very beautiful and serene
