New Orleans Cemetery Insiders Walking Tour
Journey through Masonic Cemetery #1, St. Patrick Cemetery #2, and the Katrina Memorial at Charity Hospital Cemetery
Join us on a journey through three of New Orleans’ hallowed historical cemeteries. On this tour, your master storyteller will lead you through the maze of above-ground tombs in Masonic Cemetery #1, St. Patrick Cemetery #2, and the Katrina Memorial at Charity Hospital Cemetery.
From burial customs and traditions- to the history of the Masons and Catholics in New Orleans- to the deaths of the thousands buried in the graveyard behind the Katrina Memorial, this tour will leave you with feelings of trepidation and excitement, as well as with a reverence for our city’s incredible history.
This is a narrated 1.5-hour walking tour with shuttle service to and from the French Quarter included.
