About your host

I have been hosting tours for over 7 years. I specialize in St. Louis #1 Cemetery. As a native of New Orleans, I grew up just blocks from the cemetery. I know the history of some of its famous occupants. The burial process alone is fascinating.

What we’ll do

Tours will meet at 411 N. Rampart Street, in front of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, also know as St. Jude Church. We will explore the history of the church, which was established in 1826 as a mortuary for the victims of yellow fever. We will then take a short walk to St. Louis #2 cemetery. There I will explain the unusual burial process. I will explain why and how we bury our dead above…
