St Louis Cemetery No 3

Cemetery in Mid-City, Bayou St John & City Park

This long but compact cemetery was established in 1854 at the site of the old Bayou Cemetery and is worth strolling through for a few minutes (longer if you’re a cemetery enthusiast). Of particular note is the striking monument James Gallier Jr designed for his mother and father who were lost at sea. It's a few steps to the right just after you enter from Esplanade Ave. The cemetery’s wrought-iron entrance gate is a beauty.
