All Saints Day in New Orleans -- Decorating the Tombs in One of the City Cemeteries, an 1885 engraving. Saint Louis Cemetery is the name of three Roman Catholic cemeteries in New Orleans, Louisiana. Most of the graves are above-ground vaults constructed in the 18th and 19th centuries. Cemeteries No. 1 and No. 2 are included on the National Register of Historic Places and the Louisiana African American Heritage Trail.
The oldest of New Orleans' many historic cemeteries, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 was established in 1789 and now measures just one city block in the city's French Quarter. In the early years, everyone who was anyone was interred here, from Voodoo priestess Marie Laveau to architect Benjamin Latrobe.
