A Tour Of St. Louis Cemetery #3

We took a trek out to New Orleans City Park today. On our way, we stopped at St. Louis Cemetery #3 and did a quick video tour. Opened in 1894, St. Louis Cemetery #3 is much better organized than its counterparts. It was flooded during Hurricane Katrina but most of the tombs sustained only minor damage. Famous people entombed here include ragtime composer Paul Sarebresole, photographer E. J. Bellocq, and painter Ralston Crawford.

If you're in the vicinity, make sure to also stop by The Luling Mansion and Pitot House.
