Taste of New Orleans, part 4, La Fayette Cemetery No. 1

(31 photos) Exploring the Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 in the New Orleans Garden District, I was enthralled by the history, the tombs, the names… it was quite unlike anything here in Southern California.  I found the cemetery a bit eerie at times, with the clouds casting odd shadows, a homeless man with a very sad story approaching for money a few times, me rushing to catch up with the few other visitors walking around. It was surprising to see so many German names, so I looked up the history and found New Orleans had quite a large Irish and German immigrant population at one time. If you’re interested in the history, click on this link. I’d love to go back again one day, and have more time to explore Cemetery No. 1 and the others in New Orleans. Again I’ll say, what a fascinating place! ~SueBee

      So unlike what we have out here, flat stones that can be mowed over with ride-on lawn mowers. I’m glad my family is with the ocean! ❤

    It is such a beautiful cemetery. I am oddly fascinated by the peace you find in cemeteries, reading epitaphs and imagining lives of people long gone.

    A wonderful visit. You could almost say that all human life is there.
