New Feature!



New Orleans' cemeteries are interesting to view because the dead have to be buried above ground in crypts due to the high water level throughout the city. These two cemeteries are very well known for local New Orleans historical figures — including voodoo priestesses. Ann Rice has made references to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 in a couple of her novels.
