A Tour Of St. Louis Cemetery #2

St. Louis Cemetery No 2 is located on Claiborne Ave,  just a few blocks from St. Louis Cemetery No 1 between St. Louis Street and Iberville Street. It's divided into two sections due to Bienville Street  being run through it later in its existence. Some famous people interred here include: The Venerable Mother Henriette DeLille (a current candidate for Sainthood with one officially recognized miracle credited to her), Oscar Dunn (Louisiana's first African American Lt. Governor) as well as a number of politicians and soldiers.
