“walk among the crypts”

St. Louis No. 3 is located some 2 miles (3.2 km) back from the French Quarter, some 30 blocks from the Mississippi, fronting Esplanade Avenue near Bayou St. John. It opened in 1854. The crypts on average are more elaborate than at the other St. Louis cemeteries, including a number of fine 19th century marble tombs. Those entombed include ragtime composer Paul Sarebresole, photographer E. J. Bellocq, and painter Ralston Crawford. St. Louis No. 3 also includes a Greek Orthodox section. The cemetery was heavily flooded during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but its tombs escaped relatively unscathed. There was some plaster damage from debris.

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.
