The grounds are well-kept and most of the monuments are well-kept. Some of the older ones need some repair. Many of the tombs are unbelievable! Worth the trip! Leave before they start closing the gates! We were there lather afternoon and started to panic that we had been locked in! Luckily they left one gate open near the funeral home!

Beautiful cemetery! Notice dates, will make you think back to the history of the city. You might want to carry an umbrella to use as you walk. The sun was plenty hot. Give yourself a fare amount of time to see.

If your into cemeteries, Mausoleums and cripts this is the place to be! Some of the most amazing architecture I have seen! It'll take a few hours to walk around the entire place! It's also within walking distance to the last stop on the Canal Street Streetcar so its accessable.
