Top Ten Haunted Cemeteries New Orleans

HAUNTED NEW ORLEANS TOP 10 MOST SAID TO BE HAUNTED FOR YOU TO TOUR AND INVESTIGATE.

Not all of New Orleans cemeteries are open to tourists, and some have fallen on disrepair. However, there are Top Ten Haunted Cemeteries worth visiting:

 

1. St. Louis Cemetery No. 1

Considered by locals visitors and paranormal investigators world wide as actually the most haunted cemetery No. # 1 haunted Cemetery in all the United States.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Some of the more interesting tombs in St. Louis Number One are a huge tomb that holds the remains of some of the participants in the Battle of New Orleans; chess champion Paul Morphy; New Orleans' first black mayor, Ernest N. "Dutch" Morial. But the most famous and interesting tomb here is said to be where Voodoo Queen Marie Leveaux is buried. People still visit her tomb to light candles, perform various religious acts and leave offerings. New Orleans' first black mayor, Ernest N. "Dutch" Morial is buried right next to her.

Across the street, with its front facing N. Rampart St., is Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, which originally was the mortuary chapel built to handle the funerals and last rites of victims of yellow fever in 1826. It is the oldest surviving church in the city.

Vault burial was introduced in New Orleans during the Spanish regime, and our oldest cemetery -- St. Louis No. 1 (1789) -- has society tombs built by the French Society, the Portuguese Benevolent Association, the Cervantes Mutual Benefit Society, the Italian Society, and the Orleans Battalion of Artillery.

This New Orleans graveyard is said to be haunted by the ghost of the world famous Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, Marie Laveau. Her spirit has been reported inside of the cemetery, walking between the tombs wearing a red and white turban with seven knots in it, and mumbling a original New Orleans Santeria Voodoo curse to Cemetery trespassers. Her Voodoo curse is loud and very audible, heard often by passerby's on nearby Rampart Street. Locals say this has started in recent years for she is alarmed by the many vandals and state of the cemetery.

Voudon Believers and Tourist and locals still come to Marie Laveaus tomb daily to leave many, many Voodoo offerings. (candles, flowers, the monkey and the cock wish statue, Mardi Gras beads and parade Krewe dabloons, Gris Gris bags, Money, Voodoo dolls and food) All in hopes of being blessed by her supernatural powers from beyond the grave. Many make a wish at her tomb marking three X's. while others say they have her Ghost on film emerging undead from her tomb.

Voodoos of the New Orleans Secret Society say her soul appears here as a shiny large black Voodoo cat, with fire red eyes. If you see this Were cat run! One New Orleans Voodoo Manbo suggest upon seeing this Devil cat, cross your self three times and back away. One should never let the cat see your back. If Marie's spirit, or Devil cat sees it... you will be cursed for ever to do her bidding.

Others say Marie laveaus familiar, her large snake that she called Zombi, (or spelled Zombie, or Zomby) is buried in the tomb with her body. One voodooist says he was placed in the coffin alive with Marie's dead body by her daughter Marie Laveau II . A story or two have been told over the years of people seeing a large black boa constrictor, or black anaconda over 12 feet long slithering amongst and between or through the tombs tight small allies. Always close to Marie Laveaus' tomb is Zombi, guarding it night and day. local New Orleans Voodooist say this is a great ghost snake spirit, not a real snake. A few young teenaged boys on a recent Haunted cemetery tour tried to catch Zombi, they said they chased him down a tight alley and Zombi just disappeared. Zombi's ghost has been said to be seen high atop Marie Laveaus' tomb basking in the noon day Sun. He protects her tomb from those that mock her says many of the Voodooist of Marie Laveaus secret Society. One tale of this ghost snake tells that Zombi followed a recent New Orleans visitor back to her hotel room. He appeared and began to wrap his coils around her as she slept, Zombi frightened her out of her wits. The reason, she spit on Marie Laveaus grave.

Often stories or told of Ghostly nude Voodoo Probationers in an eternal dark secret Ritual. Always after midnight and well into the early morning hours. With Marie laveaus' ghost dressed in white presiding over the ritual. Nude Voodoo Ghost dancers, male and female can be seen and heard in an orgy of spiritual Voodoo calling dow the power.

Many times fine china plates and cups and saucers and ornate silverware or found through out St Louis No.1 graveyard. Paranormal Investigators say this is part of the ancient wiccan practice of the occult. It is called the" Dumb Supper". This is a old ritual, a mock table setting of a meal. An two empty plates filled with invisible ghostly food. It is usually a setting for the ghost and the a setting for the person who questions the ghost. This is to call the dead to answer your most sought after questions. Sometimes wine glasses or even bottles of rum and or wine, cigars or packs of cigarettes, bags of chips, or candy or even many times a loaf of french bread. All this can be found placed before many of it's tombs. Visitors think it's litter, but if you look at how it is placed you then realize it is a special ghost offering to the spirits of the cemetery.

Other know and un known ghost haunt this cemetery, there is a ghost called by some Henry. This haunted Cemetery Ghost story tells that he gave his tomb to the lady who owned a boarding house to keep the papers for him if he died. Local workers for the cemetery say she sold the tomb when he was away at sea. When he returned he died and was buried in potters field. Every day his ghost is said to walk up to someone visiting the cemetery asking if they know the where about's of the Vignes' tomb. Many a tour guide has related the tale of Henry and have said how he appears ragged and lost. And his blue eyes will look right into yours. The tall white shirt dressed man seems very real. Until he walk away into thin air. Sometimes he will tap you on the shoulder, or lead you to a lone tight alley between tombs asking " Do you Know anything about this Tomb here?" Then he disappears. Henry has also been known to have walked up to people at burials and asked if they think there's room in the tomb for him! His voice often appears on EVP's saying I "I need to rest!" And in ghost Photos he appears in a Dark suit with no shirt.

Another well known ghost of St. Louis No.1 is that of Alphonse he is a lonely young man and will take you by the hand telling you his name and asking can you help him find his way home. He is also known by some to be seen carrying flowers and vases from other tombs and placing them on his own. Those who have seen him say he is afraid of a tomb with the name Pinead on it and is said to warn visitors to stay away from it. He always has a smile on his face but is said to start crying then just disappear. Alphonse has been Known to turn up in many of a ghost Photo.

Ghost cats and dogs are said to prowl the cemetery daily. Very near the great walls of oven tombs. None of these ghost animals have ever shown signs of meanness. Several Tour guides say these are the animals of an 1800's cemetery keepers guard dogs and pets. Often they lurk the cemetery waiting for their owner who was buried in St. Louis No.2 to return to feed and care for them.

Etienne Bore, pioneer in sugar development; and, Paul Morphy, world famous chess champion and many more are buried here.

"Easy Rider" featured Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda tripping out at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1,

Orbs, ghost photos, EVP"S, strange paranormal phenomena and ghost activity, Voodoo rituals, witchcraft, and haunting's to many to mention all happen in this the most haunted Cemetery in America

2. Lafayette Cemetery No. 1

Lafayette No. 1 is the cemetery most often used in films made in New Orleans, and is across the street from the famed Commander's Palace Restaurant in the Garden Distict. It was the burial grounds for what was once the City Of Lafayette. You will find a number of prominent New Orleanians buried here. Designated a city burial site in 1833, Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 is placed on the National Register of Historic Places by virtue of its significant history, location, and architectural importance.

"Interview with a Vampire" starred Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Kirsten Dunst. It was filmed throughout the French Quarter and Lafayette Cemetery No. 1,Dracula 2000", starring Johnny Miller and Omar Epps, .

Located in the Garden District, Washington Ave and Prytania, section of New Orleans and accessible by the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar.

Built in 1833, by 1852 - when 2000 yellow fever victims were buried here - the Garden District cemetery was filled to capacity. Today it is an eerie haunted place, with many tombs still sinking into the ground, and some of them slowly opening in the shadow of tangled trees. Near the downtown-side gate of Lafayette No. 1 Cemetery stands a tomb that, to a father's eyes, resembles a crib. Nestled within, according to the fading inscriptions, are the earthly remains of three siblings who in a matter of days fell victim to yellow fever.

Ghost stories and tales of the undead, Zombies and being burried alive. Many of these ghost tales are said to be just Cemetery urban legends... Others swear thia is the most haunted Cemetery for parnomal encounters and a feeling of being truly haunted.

It's no surprise that all this decaying grandeur should capture the imagination of local author Anne Rice, who has used the place in many of her books - she even staged a mock funeral here, to launch publication of Memnoch the Devil ; the corpse was herself, wearing an antique wedding dress, in an open coffin carried by pall bearers.

Tombs in Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 are constructed with a shelf near the top where recently deceased bodies are placed. The shelf doesn't extend all the way to the back so when it's time to add another body to the family tomb the previous bones can be pushed to the rear where they fall through joining any remains already present.

Regulations limit the opening of tombs to once a year, not nearly frequently enough during times like the yellow fever epidemics, so temporary "storage ovens" line some of the exterior walls in Lafayette Cemetery No. 1.

Hours:

Monday - Friday: 7:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Saturday: 7:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Sunday & Holidays: Closed (Except Mother's Day, Father's Day and All Saint's Day)

 

3. Metairie Lakelawn Cemetery

5100 Pontchartrain Blvd. and founded in 1872, Metairie Lakelawn is entered in the National Register of Historic Places. It contains diverse cemetery architecture, including a Roman temple, an Egyptian Revival tomb, and the memorials of the Army of Tennessee and the Army of Northern Virginia. Open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily, it can be safely toured. Go to the funeral home office for information.

This site was previously a horse racing track, Metarie Race Course founded in 1838. The great oval of the old racetrack can still be seen as part of the cemetery roadway system. Metairie Cemetery covers 150 acres with over 7,000 graves.

Many Local tales of ghost seen in Metarie Cemetery here day and night.

According to a story well known locally, one Charles T. Howard, a "new money" wealthy gentleman who came to the city from Baltimore, Maryland, was refused membership in the track's exclusive "Louisiana Jockey Club". In revenge, he purchased the track grounds and converted it into a cemetery. Some local historians accept the story, others say that the race grounds were sold due to financial stress. Either way, the cemetery was opened here in 1872, and the tomb of Charles T. Howard is prominently placed in the center. Often people say his ghost is heard moving arounmd in his tomb,

A few tombs predating the foundation of this cemetery can be found here; these were originally erected in other local cemeteries and were moved here after Metarie became the city's most prestigious cemetery. Metarie Cemetery has the largest collection of elaborate marble tombs and funeral statuary in the city. A local Psychic says ghost tourist often come from their own cemeteries to visit this cemetery and admire the fine tombs.

Notables buried in Metairie Cemetery include William C. C. Claiborne, the first U.S. governor of Louisiana, P.G.T. Beauregard and other Confederate veterans, and jazz musicians legendary greats Louis Prima and Al Hirt.
Other impressive Metairie Cemetery tombs:

The giant Moriarity tomb, with a 60 foot tall marble monument. A temporary special spur railroad line was built to bring the materials for the impressive monument here.

Memorial of 19th century police chief Hennesey, whose murder sparked a riot. his ghost is said to walk around the cemetery keep a watchful eye for vandals.

You can tour the grounds without worrying about the crime associated with the downtown graveyards.

The pseudo-Egyptian pyramid the former tomb of Storyville madam Josie Arlington. noted Tomb features the bronze statue of a woman at the door of the tomb, her back turned to the other graves. Cemetery workers have said she leaves her post at night to stroll among the tombs.

You can tour the grounds without worrying about the crime associated with the downtown graveyards.

A gleaming white Egyptian pyramid with a sphinx keeping watch at the door; the row of ornate Italian- American society tombs, nicknamed "mob row"; and the grave of Louis Prima, topped with a trumpet-playing angel and engraved with lyrics from "Just a Gigolo."

4. St. Roch Cemetery

725 St. Roch Avenue, this cemetery is off the beaten track.Saint Roch Cemetery, established by Rev. P.L. Thevis as part of a promise to have his parish spared of the Yellow Fever Epidemic. The chapel at Saint Roch Cemetery, also known as the Campo Santo (Holy Country) is the site of Good Friday worship that is well known throughout the city. The cemetery is the resting place of many prominent New Orleanians

Saint Roch is the patron saint of dogs and invalids. He's also the patron of bachelors, surgeons and tile-makers. Not to mention diseased cattle.

The most famous feature here is the Chapel built by Father Thevis in thanksgiving for deliverance from one of the frequent yellow fever epidemics of the 19th century. Recipients of favors have placed various souvenirs in the chapel, such as old leg braces, or replicas of body parts, to represent favors granted. Many real ghost orb photos are taken here. Guided cemetery tours highly are recommended when visiting New Orleans St. Roch Cemetery.

Father Thevis’s work. He Established the St. Roch Cemetery on land he bought from the heirs of Jack Phillips. It was dedicated on August 16, 1876. When he died on August 21, 1893, he was buried in the chapel of the Campo Santo (St.Roch Cemetery) that he had built.

If St. Roch heals you, it's traditional to make a plaster cast of the body part so healed and give it to the shrine for display. Making plaster casts of internal organs is a bit challenging, but such is the miracle of faith.

St. Roch is reported to us to be haunted by a large black dog that can be seen heard and shows up on New Orleans ghost photos and video.

New Orleans has many different ways of honoring the lives of those who have died. One of the Catholic traditions followed in this city is observed on Good Friday, when we celebrate the Stations of the Cross (in memory of Christ's suffering and crucifixion). Catholics walk on a route of nine local churches, stopping to pray at each. The Stations of the Cross ends at St. Roch's Cemetery at 3:00 p.m., the hour of our Lord's death.

St. Roch lived during the middle ages, and worked with those suffering from the plague. The cemetery is named after him because of a pledge made by a priest who prayed to him during the yellow fever crisis of 1868. It is now a shrine, and Mass is said there on Monday mornings.

 

5. Chalmette Battlefield and National Cemetery

Established in May 1864 as a final resting place for Union soldiers who died in Louisiana during the Civil War, the cemetery also contains the remains of veterans of the Spanish- American War, World Wars I and II, and Vietnam. Four Americans who fought in the War of 1812 are buried here, but only one of them took part in the Battle of New Orleans.

Six miles southeast of New Orleans is the Chalmette Battlefield, which preserves the site of the January 8, 1815, Battle of New Orleans, a decisive American victory over the British at the end of the War of 1812. Facilities include a tour road, visitor center, and the Malus-Beauregard House (c.1833). Adjacent is the Chalmette National Cemetery. Located on St. Bernard Highway in Chalmette. The Battlefield is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Very haunted with ghost of The battle of New Orleans and more. Many real strange sightings and ghost photos happen here daily . Orbs mists, EVP's and and occasional feeling of being grabed by unseen hands.

Adjacent to the battlefield, is the United States Civil War Chalmette National Cemetery, honoring Civil War soldiers who died on both sides. Those buried there include members of the famous Buffalo Soldiers. The cemetery sits on a tract of land which is approximately where the British artillery was located during the Battle of New Orleans. Both of these sites are maintained by the National Park Service, and are open to the public.

The Chalmette National Cemetery website has searchable databases, listing the soldiers who are buried at this location, The Union Army and the Confederate Army. Chalmette National Cemetery
Confederate Database www.cwc.lsu.edu/cwc/projects/dbases/chalm.la.csa.htm


Also located on the Chalmette Battlefield grounds, and serving as a museum and visitor center, is the Beauregard House. Beauregard House was never used as a plantation, and was built in 1830. It is named for René Beauregard, its last owner, the son of the Civil War Confederate General, P. G. T. Beauregard (whose monument is at the entrance to City Park, at the north end of Esplanade Avenue). While many visitors arrive by automobile, many also arrive by riverboat, the Chalmette Battlefield being part of the tour.

Additional artifacts of the Civil War can be seen at the Confederate Civil War Museum, located in downtown New Orleans, 929 Camp Street, just one block from Lee Circle

 

 

6. OddFellows Rest

5055 Canal Street sometimes called and known as the Spookiest scariest Cemetery or scariest graveyard in the city of New Orleans as deemed by many locals and tourist. The cemetery was dedicated on Feb. 29, 1849, They chose a very good spot on high ground at the intersection of Canal Street and Metairie Road.

In 1847, a secret benevolent society, "The independent Order of Oddfellow", founded a famous cemetery at the bottom of Canal Street,

The fisrt burials here began with a splendid ceremony and a grand procession parade led by two circus bandwagons, one pulled by 16 horses. There was also a funeral car carrying a sarcophagus of "quite imposing appearance." The membership had gathered the remains of 16 deceased members from other cemeteries in the city. These were carried in the funeral car and were the first burials in the group's new cemetery.

Odd Fellows Rest contains many monuments. One of the most interesting is the centrally located society tomb which bears a plaque with the German words “Freundschaft, Liebe and Warheit” which translates as Friendship, Love and Truth. The Howard Association Memorial has a bas-relief on its façade commemorating the organization’s founder. The bas-relief art form is not seen in most New Orleans cemeteries. The monument memorializes an organization that was active in1853 in aiding indigent yellow fever victims. The cemetery also has cast iron tombs. Odd Fellows Rest has been described as the most verbally expressive cemetery. Many of the tombs contain poetic passages. Examples are “In the midst of life we are in death” and “Weep not for me, I am not dead/I am only sleeping here.” The cemetery has escaped proposed demolition in the past; however, no Odd Fellows Lodge remains in New Orleans and the cemetery shows evidence of neglect and vandalism.

Many a haunted ghost sighting or ghost tale begins here at Odd Fellows Rest concerning ghost running out the Cemetery and across Canal Street. Often a starteled driver and frequent auto ghost related acidents happen at this haunted street corner..( Six haunted New Orleans cemeteries are locate all here.) The cause that the drivers say all the time is, "Someone ran out in front of m e." " I hit the brakes and they just dissapeared."

Within three years, the cemetery had erected 200 vaults and the tomb of the Teutonia Lodge No. 10. There were also walks laid out named for past grand masters of the Order. Walls on two sides enclosed the cemetery, and most of the plots were filled by 1930.

New Orleans was originally a swamp and still exists below sea level. The land on which OddFellows Rest is located is relatively high by New Orleans standards. When the backwaters of the "Crevasse of 1849" poured in. the now infamous OddFellows Rest remained intact.

OddFellows Rest houses a sculptured memorial of John Howard, an English philanthropist, Yellow fever activist, and prison/Lazaretto reformer.

Strange stories of ghost dogs and weird sounds at night behind the high body filled walls, Zombies and ghost cats stories abound at this haunted cemetery.

Two important memorials in the cemetery are the tomb of the Howard Association and the society tomb of Southwestern Lodge No. 40, Independent Order of Odd Fellows. This is believed to be the original Teutonia Lodge No. 10 tomb. On it you can see the German inscription Freundschaft, Liebe, und Wahrheit, which means Friendship, Love, and Truth.

The Howard Association tomb was erected by a group of 30 young men who came together for the purpose of aiding victims of yellow-fever plagues. They named themselves in honor of John Howard, an 18th-century English philanthropist and social reformer.

Today, OddFellows Rest shelters a busy bus stop; in mid-facade lies a health food hut; and its once vividly painted cast iron gates are now black. And the black cast-iron gates that are incomplete. At one time they were painted in bright colors. Forty years ago the panels were intact, but today the two panels on the left have been vandalized. You can still see, however, the symbols of the society: the mother and her children, a beehive, the Bible, the cornucopia, the world, the eye of the Deity, the five-pointed stars, the initials "I.O. of O.F."

The Catholic Church never tolerated segregation, so if you were African American and Catholic, you could buy a tomb in a Catholic cemetery and bury your dead right next to the white folks. But there were a lot of protestant cemeteries that wouldn't allow African Americans to be buried in them. So benevolent societies like the Odd Fellows bought land just outside of town for a cemetery so African Americans would not have to worry about having a place to spend eternity. This cemetery is surrounded by a ten-foot wall, and is probably the least explored of the cemeteries at the foot of Canal.

Many locals tell the tale of a ghost called old Mr. Mike, He is said to haunt the cemeteries outer wall and is a very nice dead person to meet. Often lone persons standing outside the cemetery day or night say they have encountered him and he has stayed talked. Telling them to be carefull at the late hours of the night while waiting to catch a bus," I see thing."s He says, " Strang things and strange people." then he just disappears before your eyes. Many say they see him dressed in a white t-shirt and dark pants no matter what time of year or the weather, always walking his large ghost dog.

7. Greenwood Cemetery

At 5242 Canal Blvd., Greenwood is home to the Protective Order of Elks Society tomb, as well as to other society tombs of varying groups. Writer John Kennedy Toole ("A Confederacy of Dunces") is buried here. And locals say his ghost wanders the area and has been photographed often. Extremely well taken care of cemetery

Greenwood is the first cemetery you'll come to off the street car, and it's one of the most recognizable cemeteries because of the big monuments in the front. Some of the vaults here are the Elk's crypt, which is a burial mound with a statue of an elk on top, and the Fireman's Benevolent monument, which has a statue of a firefighter in the center. There are also lots of old family tombs in this cemetery, as well as many newer graves and tombs in the back portion.

Greenwood including the Firemen's monument next to Elks tomb and the Confederate monument that stands in the left corner near the Interstate entrance. This one, erected by the Ladies Benevolent Association of Louisiana, marks the mass graves of 600 Confederate soldiers. And, of course, there is also a tomb constructed by the Police Mutual Benevolent Association.

Roughly 10 years after Cypress Grove was dedicated, Greenwood Cemetery became one of the most active burial sites in New Orleans, and the first not to be enclosed by walls made up of crypts like the other cemeteries in New Orleans at the time. There are over 20,500 tombs in this 150 acre cemetery. The cemetery has three prominent monuments that adorn its City Park Avenue frontage, the Fireman Monument, the Elks Lodge Monument, and the Civil War Monument. The Fireman Monument was erected to show respect to the 20 or so volunteer fire companies that were in the City of New Orleans. The monument has a life-size statue of a fireman scanning the skyline, poised for action at any sign of trouble. The city had many horrible fires that destroyed vast blocks of buildings in the French Quarter. The monument to the right of the Fireman Monument is that of the Benevolent Protective of the Elks, lodge number 30. This tomb is made of a round earthen mound with a bronze statue of the association’s symbol, the elk. The Elks Lodge was created by a group of thespians who held their meetings after hours. At the end of their meetings, they would take time to give a toast at eleven o’clock. The hands on the clock face on the tomb point to this exact moment in time. Lastly, the first veterans’ memorial that was built in New Orleans stands to the left of the Fireman Monument near I-10 and the railroad tracks. The Veterans’ memorial has a statue of an unknown Confederate soldier leaning on his rifle and has the busts of four historic figureheads including Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. There are more then 500 Confederate soldiers buried under this monument.


Greenwood Cemetery was established by the Firemen’s Charitable & Benevolent Association in 1852. Its opening immediately relieved the overcrowding at Cypress Grove. In 1852, America was stricken with an epidemic of yellow-fever. New Orleans, America’s third largest city, was hit particularly hard. By 1853, over 8,000 in the city had expired from the disease. Greenwood’s one hundred and fifty acres provided an expanse to accommodate the pressing need at the time and for future generations.

When the Firemen’s Charitable & Benevolent Association broke ground to build Greenwood Cemetery, it broke with tradition and built the first above ground cemetery without walls. Sparse in architecture and landscaping, Greenwood was designed to maximize its acreage to make room for nearly 20,000 grave lots. Imposing memorials line the perimeter giving the cemetery a park atmosphere.

A often told local tale tells of a pack of ghost dogs are said to roam the cemetery. Often they say they hear a baby crying. And the ghost of a young girl is said to be seen perring from behind tombs always following people around. Many EVP's happen here. And ghostly sounds are heard.

The first Civil War memorial to be erected in New Orleans is Greenwood’s Confederate Monument. A low mound marks the mass grave of six hundred Confederate soldiers whose remains were gathered through the efforts of the Ladies Benevolent Association of Louisiana. Dedicated in 1874, the masonry mausoleum is topped by a granite gallery enclosing an imposing marble pedestal. A statue of a Confederate infratryman resting on his rifle surmounts this pedestal.

The statuary is of a Cararra marble and was carved in Italy. The pedestal base has integral, carved busts of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Albert Sidney, Johnston and Leonidas Polk. Architect Benjamin M. Harrod was the designer; the memorial contractor was George Stroud.

Greenwood’s centerpiece memorial is the Firemen’s Monument designed and constructed by Charles Orleans, and erected by the Association in 1887 in honor of its 50th anniversary. The figure of a volunteer fireman is enshrined beneath a cluster of Gothic arches crowned by a steeple. The six-foot high Italian marble statue was created by Alexander Doyle of New York and carved by artist Nicoli.

The monument is centered atop a mound which rises five feet above surrounding paths; from its base, the height is 46 feet. A light grey, Hallowell, Maine granite was used in the original construction not only for its structural integrity and longevity, but also for its meditative, respectful tones.

It is believed that a monument to Sir Walter Scott in Edinburg, Scotland inspired Charles Orleans’ design for the Firemen’s Monument. The monument honors the memory of volunteer firemen who died in the line of duty. The names of twenty-three volunteer fire companies are honored around the base in tribute to their service to the citizens of New Orleans.

The use of cast iron for tombs came into vogue in mid-19th century cemeteries, and Greenwood Cemetery has its share of stunning examples. An iron tomb enclosed by a Gothic-styled fence holds the remains of Isaac Newton Marks, a former president of the Firemen’s Association. Marks a successful businessman, became a volunteer firefighter with the Perseverance Fire Co. No. 13 in 1843.

Another imposing monument at Greenwood is the tomb of Lodge No.30 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. The fraternal order was founded in 1868 by a group of actors and musicians in New York. A majestic bronze elk stands guard over a burial mound blanketed with grass. A marble chamber beneath contains eighteen burial vaults. Its granite entrance employs the Doric style in its use of two fluted columns supporting an entablature. A clock with hands pointing to the 11th hour, symbolic of a ritual toast to absent members, adorns the pediment. Bronze doors seal the entry. The tomb was erected in 1912 by Albert Weiblen, a German immigrant and one of the most successful builders of tombs and cemetery monuments in the South.

Numerous fraternal organizations joined the Volunteer Firemen and Elks in providing memorials to their deceased members. Multivault tombs preserve the history of these organizations and the contributions of their members to New Orleans. The Police Mutual Benevolent Association, the Swiss Society, and the New Orleans Typographical Union are fine examples at Greenwood. The typographical union, formed in 1855, was the first labor union in the region.

In 1982, the Firemen’s Charitable & Benevolent Association opened a new chapter at Greenwood with the addition of a magnificent mausoleum. With 14,000 burial spaces planned, the mausoleum will meet the ever-growing needs of the community and provide peace, comfort and security for families looking for a final resting place for their beloved and for themselves.

For over 170 years, Greenwood Cemetery has honored the history of New Orleans, its bravest citizens, and its industrious leaders with its magnificent memorials, monuments and tombs. The dedication of the Firemen’s Charitable & Benevolent Association promises to preserve these hallowed grounds for future generations to honor the memory of their loved ones.

Notable Residents
Abial Daily Crossman (Mayor of New Orleans - 1846-1854). Perhaps one of his most enduring accomplishments was the construction of a City Hall on St. Charles Avenue. Designed by noted architect James Gallier, the building cost $120,000 in 1846 and is one of the few examples of pure Greek architecture in the United States. Public education is another legacy of the Crossman Administration. Crossman succeeded in obtaining state funding to create a new public school system to educate children from the age of 6 to 10. This system was enlarged through the beneficence of John McDonogh who died in 1850. A.D. Crossman Elementary School on S. Carrollton Avenue honors the memory of the late mayor. The Crossman Monument was designed by Jacques dePouilly in 1863. A symbolic urn is borne atop a gracefully fluted Doric column in this elegant marker. The A.D. Crossman Monument is bordered by a cast iron fence, a mid-19th century signature addition.

John Fitzpatrick ( Mayor of New Orleans - 1892-1896). Served as a State Legislator, President of the Firemen’s Charitable & Benevolent Association, State President of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, and an organizer of the Knights of Columbus. His tenure as mayor ushered in a new era for New Orleans, with railcars no longer being powered by mules, but electricity. He founded the present public library system and was called the “Father of the Sewerage and Water System.”

Effingham Lawrence (Member of the U.S. House of Representatives - 1875). Born in Bayside, New York in 1820, he moved to Louisiana in 1843. His agricultural pursuits included planting and refining sugar. His political pursuits included tenure in the Louisiana House of Representatives. He was elected to the Forty-third Congress in 1875. He died on Magnolia Plantation in Plaquemines Parish in 1878.

John Kennedy Toole (Pulitzer Prize Author). Toole was born in New Orleans in 1937. An unusually gifted child, he graduated from high school at 16. At 20, he graduated from Tulane University with honors in English and a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship for graduate studies. In 1957, he enrolled at Columbia University where he completed in one year a two-year master’s literature program. He was a literature professor until drafted in the army in 1961. While teaching English at Fort Buchanan, Puerto Rico, Toole completed his manuscript, A Confederacy of Dunces. Despondent over his inability to get published, Toole tragically ended his life in 1969. In 1980, Louisiana State University published A Confederacy of Dunces and it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

8.Valence Street Cemetery

This cemetery was once known as the City Cemetery of the City of Jefferson, one of those cemeteries laid out to meet the needs of the residents of the city's suburbs. When New Orleans annexed Jefferson City in 1870, the cemetery went with the deal.

It is said to be haunted by many ghost and and voodoo practioners wandering spirits.

An interesting place, the cemetery has a number of old society tombs such as the St. Anthony of Padua Italian Mutual Benefit Society, the St. Joseph's Sepulcher of the Male and Female benevolent Association, and the Ladies and Gentlemen Perseverance Benevolent Association. Many well dressed ghost are encountered and said to be photgraphed here.

Jefferson City/Valence Street Cemetery
The Jefferson City Cemetery (later called the Valence St. Cemetery), located at St. Patrick (now S. Saratoga), St. David (now Danneel), Valence and Bordeaux Streets, became a City cemetery in 1870 when Jefferson City was annexed to the City of New Orleans.

Also, when German philanthropist John David Fink's remains were removed from the Girard Street Cemetery when it was demolished, they were buried in this cemetery. and it is often pointed out that his restless ghost is often seen and photographed and EVP's happen too.

 

8.St. Patrick's Cemeteries #1 #2 & #3

143 City Park Avenue This sprawling cemetery starts in one location and picks up in another. The entire Canal Street City Park avenue area is host to over 6 cemeteries all in in walking distance. Many ghost tours have night time excursions to these particular cemeteries. Word has it that this is the Cemetery to capture Ghost Photos and EVP's. It is said to be very haunted by the ghost of a stout white haired woman that will follow you around the cemetery as if curious of your doings or actions.

St. Patrick's, these cemeteries were originally constructed by the local Irish to bury their dead. These all date back to the time of the big yellow fever outbreaks in the 1840s. They aren't as old as the St. Louis cemeteries, but they're excellent, and a lot safer than many of the others.

Voodoo rituals, Seance' and Zombie ghost tale or told about this haunted cemetery. Of late many tell the tale of a investigtor who actually gave up doing it because of what he encountered here. Also the tale of a ghosts face that appears on a tall marble head stone, and many say you can see it as you drive by the cemetery through the wrought iron fence day or night.

In the 19th century a large influx of Irish immigrants came to New Orleans. In order to cope with difficult times, many ethnic groups stuck together. Among these groups were the Irish. The Irish Catholics built St. Patrick Church, the oldest parish church in N.O. and on the list of national historic landmarks, on Camp Street. After the completion of the church , the congregation bought a piece of land at the end of Canal St. from a free man of color. The piece of land, divided by Canal St. and Metairie Rd, is now known as City Park Avenue. This is how the three cemeteries got their names.

St. Patrick #2 faired more favorably when it comes to traditional tomb rows and design that is common in New Orleans. Within St. Patrick #2 is a statue of Mary that is mourning over the dead body of Christ.

9. Cypress Grove

Cypress Grove Cemetery became the first cemetery built to honor New Orleans volunteer firemen and their families. It was made possible in 1838 by New Orleans philanthropist Stephen Henderson whose estate left property to the Firemen’s Charitable & Benevolent Association. The charitable association sold this property to fund the purchase of the cemetery site at the end of Canal Street and the former banks of Bayou Metairie.

Sometimes called the Fireman's Cemetery, Cypress Grove, founded by the Firemen's Charitable and Benevolent Association in 1840, Numerous graves and vaults commemorate deceased firemen, and there are several unusual tombs such as that of the Chinese association Soon On Tong. Located at 120 City Park Avenue near the convergence of Canal Street, there are several other cemeteries to tour in the area.

They are reminiscent of the Egyptian revival architecture. Even though the name depicts a grove of Louisiana’s state tree, the bald cypress, there are very few on the premises. However, there are many other native trees, like the live oak and magnolia. The cemetery has many interesting tombs and monuments including a broken column for Irad Ferry. Ferry was a volunteer fire fighter of the Mississippi Fire Company #2 who had died in one of New Orleans infamous blazes. There are also tombs for the Soon On Tong Association, and two tombs that resemble churches more then tombs. The Charles L. Leeds tomb is constructed entirely of cast iron and now has long since rusted. Leeds owned one of the largest iron processing companies in the region. On the other hand the Soon On Tong Association was built in the early 1900s for the Chinese immigrants that lived in New Orleans. Within the tomb is a small fireplace where relatives would burn prayer notes for the deceased. This cemetery is a very picturesque setting and is located at the very end of the Canal Streetcar Line.

Architect Frederick Wilkinson patterned the grand entrance pylons and lodges after Egyptian ceremonial architecture. Crowning this imposing entrance was the motto: “Here to their bosom mother earth, take back in peace what thou has given, and, all that is of heavenly birth, God in peace recall to heaven.”

Shortly after opening the cemetery, the remains of volunteer firemen entombed elsewhere were moved to Cypress Grove. Volunteer fire companies built elaborate multi-vault tombs to enshrine their fallen members. The vaults of Perseverance Fire Co. No. 13 are erected at the entrance of Cypress Grove. This tomb was designed by architect John Barrett in 1840. The twin tombs of the Philadelphia Fire Engine Co. No. 14 and that of the Eagle Co. No. 7 were erected in the 1840’s.

In time, other societies joined the volunteer firemen in building impressive monuments for their members at Cypress Grove. Leading architects and craftsmen were called upon to design and build tombs commemorating the lives of New Orleans’s most prominent citizens. Crafted in marble, granite, and cast iron, tombs at Cypress Grove are among the nation’s leading examples of memorial architecture.

Notable Residents
“James H. Caldwell (Theatrical impresario and entrepreneur). James Caldwell was a theatrical impresario who built the first English-speaking theater in New Orleans, The St. Charles. The ornate five tier and 4,100 seat theater was considered the finest theatrical facility in America. Caldwell sent to England for a gas machine to light his chandeliers. Eventually, Caldwell would not only light his stage but all of New Orleans. His New Orleans Gas Light Company illuminated streets and houses, making New Orleans the fourth American city to have gas, right behind Baltimore, New York and Boston. The most consequential entrepreneur of his era, Caldwell went to his grave in Cypress Grove known as New Orleans’s “Father of Light.”

John R. Conway (Mayor of New Orleans, 1868-1870). A successful wholesale grocer during the Civil War. After the war, he became the first chairman of the reorganized Orleans Parish Democratic Committee. His election as mayor marked the end of military control over local government. During his administration, the city took shipment of American sculptor Hiram Powers’ statue of Benjamin Franklin.

Irad Ferry (Leading businessman and a volunteer fireman with Mississippi Co. No.2). He served as treasurer of the Firemen’s Charitable & Benevolent Association. He died fighting a fire on Camp Street on New Year’s Day 1837. He was the first of many Association members and among the many brave volunteer and professional firemen to lose his life in the line of duty. His remains were moved to the new cemetery during its dedication ceremony in 1841. The Irad Ferry monument in Cypress Grove symbolizes a life cut short – a broken Doric column planted atop the classical sarcophagus. The stone coffin depicts a 19th Century fire engine in crisp relief. It was designed by the famed architect Jacques de Pouilly, who modeled the Ferry memorial after a monument in the Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.

Charles L. Leeds ( Mayor of New Orleans, 1874-1876). His administration succeeded in passing an act in the state legislature empowering the city of New Orleans to take over drainage projects. During his tenure a drainage canal on Nashville Avenue was completed to drain the low area between St. Charles Avenue and the Mississippi River. Leeds also extended the street railways, extending the line running out to the Lake Pontchartrain Summer Resort. Mayor Leeds died in 1898 at the age of 75 and became the first Mayor of New Orleans interred in Cypress Grove.

John T. Monroe (Mayor of New Orleans, 1860-1862 and 1866-1867). A native of Virginia and blood relative of President James Monroe, he came to New Orleans before his 21st birthday with only three dollars in his pocket. Working as a laborer on the levee, he learned the business of stevedoring. He became a labor leader and drifted into politics. In 1858, he was elected to the Board of Assistant Aldermen and was placed on the important committee of Streets and landings. Two years later, he was promoted mayor. His administration was noted for moving the street car tracks from the sides of Canal Street to the neutral ground. He also connected the city to the Carrollton suburb with the Carrollton Railroad. Shortly after the outbreak of the Civil War, the city fell into the hands of Federal authorities and General Butler ordered Mayor Monroe sent to prison. After the war, Monroe was re-elected Mayor in 1866. Signs of the city’s recovery from the war were noted in Monroe’s second term with the operation of the first street cars on St. Charles Avenue and Carondelet Street and the opening of the Tchoupitoulas line.

“Maunsel White (Veteran of the Battle of New Orleans and notable merchant). A prominent businessman in antebellum Louisiana, better known among epicures for his creation, “Maunsel White Peppersauce.” White was among the first in the nation to market a sauce of Tabasco chiles. White’s secret recipe of mashed and strained chiles mixed with vinegar and salt cultivated appetites around the world. Maunsel White is entombed in a fine marble memorial designed in the Greek Revival style by architect Jacques de Pouilly.


William J. Behan (Mayor of New Orleans, 1882-1884). The son of Irish immigrants, Behan was educated at the Western Military Institute in Nashville, Tennessee. His military training prepared him for service as an artillery officer in the Confederate Army. He was the youngest artillery officer under General Robert E. Lee’s command. During the Civil War, he rose from the rank of non-commissioned officer to general. After the war, Behan returned to New Orleans where he engaged as a merchant, manufacturer, and sugar planter. He became first mayor of New Orleans under the new city charter. Behan declined to seek re-election and later broke ranks with the Democratic Party when they proposed to put sugar on the free tariff list. He joined the Republican Party during the Cleveland Administration served as chairman of the Republican State Executive Committee from 1900-1912. He was the Republican candidate for Governor in 1904.

Often people say they smell smoke... But where is the fire. Ghost photos taken here or often hazy and faces often appear in them.

10. St Louis Cemetery No. 3

3421 Esplanade Ave, Mid-City, this cemetery is probably the most accessible as well as the largest of the St. Louis group. Established in 1854, it contains the outstanding Byzantine tomb of the Hellenic Orthodox Community and the final resting place of Storyville photographer Ernest Belloq. Many tour buses go here, but you can safely wander through alone, and enjoy a self-guided cemetery tour. It is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.


St. Louis Number Three, though, is located near the foot of Esplanade Avenue, near Bayou St. John and across from Holy Rosary Church and is worth a visit. Many old families have tombs here, as well as many religious orders. You can take a bus from the Old U.S. Mint down the length of Esplanade Ave., a good way to see the far side of the Quarter and Faubourg St. John, and it drops you off right near the bayou. There are other interesting sights down this way, too: Pitot House around the corner on Moss St., and the new Orleans Museum of Art and City Park across the bayou. Highly recommended for Jazz Fest visitors, since it's the neighborhood of the Fair Grounds.

St. Louis #3 is located some 2 miles back from the French Quarter, some 30 blocks from the Mississippi, fronting Esplanade Avenue near Bayou St. John. It opened in 1854. The crypts on average are more elaborate than at the other St. Louis cemeteries, including a number of fine 19th century marble tombs. Those entombed here include ragtime composer Paul Sarebresole and photographer E.J. Bellocq. St. Louis #3 also includes a Greek Orthodox section.

A peaceful beautiful New Orleans burial ground, built in 1856 on the site of a leper colony, St Louis No. 3 is mostly used by religious orders; all the priests of the diocese are buried here, and fragile angels balance on top of the tombs. People who live in the area say they see orbs of light floating down the roads as they pass. And many say they see ghost walking through the cemetery ofte, Many tourist capture ghost on video and film here, and EVP's or plentiful. This is a Must see haunted Cemetery.

The walls of these cemeteries are made up of economical vaults that are stacked on top of one another. The rich and wealthier families could afford the larger ornate tombs with crypts. Many family tombs look like miniature houses complete with iron fences. The rows of tombs resemble streets. New Orleans burial plots quickly became known as "Cites of the Dead."

New Orleans first Cemetery was called St. Peter Street Cemetery, it was located in what is now the actual French Quarter. So it is honest to say that parts of the famous the French Quarter is built over a cemetery and that's why it is haunted According to accounts of the time, all burials were in the ground. Accounts of the time also stated that when graves were dug, they frequently filled up with water, resulting in watery graves.

When the graveyard was close to capacity, city officials established St. Louis Cemetery #1. At the time, Esteban Miro was the governor of New Orleans and his allegiance was to Spain. Therefore, when the St. Louis Cemetery was developed, the wall vault system that was popular in Spain at the time was adopted for those wishing to be buried stylishly above ground. Ground burial also continued at St. Louis Cemetery.

Following a series of nasty epidemics in the early 1830's often blamed on noxious fumes emitted by corpses, the city council passed an ordinance requiring all further burials to take place on land purchased on the Bayou St. John. But an important exemption was made: burials could continue at the existing cemeteries if they were in tombs and vaults in existing above-ground structures.

This fortified the tradition of above-ground burial for New Orleanians. Even today, in Metairie Cemetery which is on high ground (by New Orleans standards) 90% of burials are above ground. Interestingly, in the Jewish section of Metairie Cemetery most burials are ground burials, keeping with the traditions established in that culture.

This historic cemetery is located on the Esplanade Ridge, a naturally occurring high ridge of land that runs between the Mississippi River and Bayou St. John. The cemetery is located next to Bayou St. John, a natural body of water that served as a passageway between the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi River and allowed for the settlement of New Orleans. Located near City Park, one of the country’s largest urban parks, the cemetery is situated on land that was previously known as “Leper’s Land.” In the late eighteenth century, the city’s lepers were exiled to this land for burial. Adorned by a set of heavy cast iron gates at its entrance, St. Louis Cemetery # 3 opened in 1854 in response to the urgent need to provide burial space after the most ravaging outbreak of yellow fever in New Orleans. Since the cemetery’s opening, it has been one of the most steadily utilized in New Orleans. Today, it has over four hundred interments a year and a waiting list to purchase burial space. Even though burial plots are crowded together, broad main aisles give the cemetery a wide-open appearance. The main aisles are named after saints; the cross aisles are named for bishops and archbishops. The cemetery contains several society tombs, vaults for priests and nuns, and tombs for many historic and prominent personages in New Orleans history.

Ghost Hunting & Paranormal Investigating may be Adventurous & Fun but Permission should ALWAYS be sought so that Private Residences are Respected & Not Trespassed!

Abandoned areas should STILL be respected and permission sought to be on them while Condemned areas should not be trespassed, period - This includes Haunted New Orleans Cemeteries also.

Stop by your local police station & ask if it would be permitted for you to be on any area or place, & to also let them know you will be there if it's ok for you to do so, ( including permission of owners should be sought ).

Vadalism is unacceptable, & could land you in jail or any other amount of trouble.
