St. Louis Cemetery #1

Before classes started on day 2, I visited the Saint Louis Cemetery #1.

Saint Louis Cemetery is the name of three Roman Catholic cemeteries in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The burials are in above ground vaults; most were constructed in the 18th century and 19th century. The above-ground tombs are required here because the ground water levels make burial impractical in New Orleans.
