City of The Dead

New Orleans in 1790 was expanding exponentially. This created a problem: in a city where high ground was at a premium for the living, there was no place for the dead. To solve this problem, St Louis Cemetery was constructed in a swampy section behind the city referred to as “a city of the dead” by Mark Twain. A great place to learn about the history and traditions of New Orleans is by exploring this, city of the dead, the oldest cemetery still in use in New Orleans. This isn’t a ghost tour we focus on the real history of of New Orleans.
