Join in on this Let The Dead Speak! Saint Louis Cemetery No. 2 Walking Tour. Opened in 1823 and located in the Faubourg Tremé neighborhood, Saint Louis Cemetery No. 2 was the first cemetery in the city known to have specific areas designated exclusively for African Americans. Listen to historical narratives of struggle, activism, and achievement. St. Louis Cemetery # 2 is a vital symbol of Creole history and community. Along its aisles you will find pirates, dualists, nuns, war heroes, musicians, politicians and entrepreneurs all resting together. Larger than Cemetery No. 1 and taking up 3 city blocks. Square #3 contains the largest number of monuments in one place noting the achievements and struggles of Black Americans in the 19th century. Tomb design, the carved sculpture, and the ironwork surrounding the tombs comprise one of the finest collections of antebellum mortuary art found anywhere else.
