New Orleans Cemeteries

New Orleans...I was here a child and the only thing I remember were the graveyards where like this...the dead were placed in tombs above the ground instead of buried...Dad & I walked all through the graveyard...it was interesting. My brothers were not interested at all, but I always loved history like Dad. Old forts, buildings, graveyards, ect.....OK, just say it, I was a weird child! :)
Saint Louis Cemetery in New Orleans, Louisiana. ew Orleans is located well below sea level, the dead are buried in above-ground tombs or vaults. These tombs, which can resemble small architectural buildings, have earned the New Orleans' cemeteries the grand nickname, " The Cities Of The Dead." Located on the edge of the haunted French Quarter in New Orleans, the oldest still serviced cemetery.
