I'm obsessed with cemeteries. Wish they had night tours!
Inspired by the movie Vampire Diaries my family went here all the way from the Philippines. Whew!. #Vampire Diaries #RoadtripUs
A very wild growing and much abandoned cemetery. My visit was 11/19/11 and certainly several larger enclosed tombs were being used as shelter for various activities. Much like Tourguidechuck's review there were several open graves and even more that were less maintained. I definitely had the feeling of being watched and not welcome in the area. I do believe it is still a great and historical visit and am glad for the experience.
It was a beautiful cemetery. We didn't make it within the hours it was open, but enjoyed taking pictures of it anyway. I see one reviewer refers to the neighborhood as 'dodgy' & I must admit we were lost when we found it. I'd intended to be on the other side of St Charles. But the people who spoke to us in this neighborhood were friendly and polite.
Really cool place. There was a little up keep but overall it's a cool place to see
