Canal Street Cemeteries & Katrina Memorial Tour
In a city as old as New Orleans, the dead outnumber the living. Nowhere is this more evident than at the end of the Canal Streetcar line in the heart of downtown. Join us as we explore inside, Charity Hospital's Katrina Memorial, Cypress Grove (also known as the Firemen's Cemetery), and Greenwood Cemeteries.
Visit the entrance and learn about the Dispersed of Judah. Odd Fellows Rest, and St Patrick's #1 and #2 Cemeteries. Hear about our unique burial customs and practices, the Yellow Fever Epidemic, Second Line Parades and so much more!
Don't forget your camera, these cemeteries have many beautiful architectural details including a tomb made entirely of cast iron!
