Established in 1789 in what was then the swampy outskirts of the city, St. Louis Cemetery #1 is the oldest extant cemetery in New Orleans. In a city known for beautiful above-ground cemeteries, this is where it all started. Centuries-old neglected tombs crumble beside beautifully restored ones, and saints and angels are revered alongside voodoo queens, politicians, fallen soldiers, eccentric millionaires, civil rights pioneers, and the enslaved.
