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.

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.
One of New Orleans infamous cemeteries full of above ground mausoleums. This cemetery is used to receiving tourist curious about the tombs so you will not be about of place if you chose to stop by and have a walk around. Please note this is a cemetery and some families still use the old mausoleums and may be building or visiting the departed.
Beautiful cemetery, with green spaces which makes it less hot than other cemeteries around N.O. Also less touristy, which makes it even more refreshing.
Beautiful and quiet cemetery to take a walk.
