Full description
Explore a unique collection of 5 culturally and architecturally diverse cemeteries in New Orleans’ historic Mid-City neighborhood. These cemeteries are located on what was once the northern (lakeside) boundary of the city of New Orleans, which explains the density and variety of cemeteries in this area. It is also where the remains of unidentified bodies from Hurricane Katrina are buried.

Take the 47 streetcar from Downtown New Orleans to the meeting point at Sacred Grinds Coffee House where there are bathrooms and refreshments available for purchase before the tour begins. It also gives guests a glimpse of New Orleans’ mysterious Odd Fellows Rest – the final resting place for members of a faded secret society.

Then on to the cemeteries. Learn about the trials and tribulations of the city’s early Irish immigrants in St. Patrick Cemetery as well as the devastating effects of yellow fever in the Charity Hospital Cemetery. Experience stunning architecture while admiring some of the city’s most extravagant tombs in Greenwood & Cypress Grove cemeteries.

Conclude your tour with an in-depth overview of the lasting effects of Hurricane Katrina while paying respect to the many lives lost in the Hurricane Katrina Memorial Cemetery.
