New Orleans Cemetery
Just as you’ve probably heard, the cemeteries in New Orleans are super beautiful and creepy and cool. Since the city is built on a swamp, early New Orleanians discovered that burying bodies underground wasn’t a good idea. There were a lot of unplanned family reunions, as buried bodies and coffins would often float back up above ground because of New Orleans’ high water table. The solution was above ground mausoleums, usually made of marble or granite and they are sometimes huge and very impressive.
