New Orleans Cemeteries The cemeteries in New Orleans arent like the ones around here they are above the ground They are like because in New Orleans the water table is high so the casket would literally float In the cemeteries 90 of the burials are above ground this makes the cemeteries look like little towns they are often called the cities of the dead In the Jewish section of the cemetery most of the burials are in the ground because they want to stick with the traditions established in there culture They have been housing there dead in small above ground tombs for over 200 years and dont seam to stop anytime soon The first cemetery to have the above ground burials was St Louis Number 1 It was made with the wall vault system that was popular in Spain at the time The family that were rich or wealthier could afford larger ornate tombs with crypts that make the tombs look nice and make them seam rich The poorer families had tombs that look like little house with iron fences around them The rows of tombs in the cemeteries resemble streets This style of cemetery made New Orleans a very famous place If you plan on going to see the beautiful cemeteries beware do not go there alone Travel with a group of people or get a tour guide because the narrow paths and many tombs make concealment for muggers very good and easy to do
