Overview

From the gates of Lafayette Cemetery you can see the lavish above-ground vaults and tombs of the families that once lived in the surrounding Garden District mansions. Mansions that were built by American newcomers when the French Creoles made them unwelcome in the older part of the city. Gates are open during working hours, but it is not advisable to walk about the grounds alone. Guided tours are offered by Save Our Cemeteries.
