Lake Lawn Cemetery
Lake Lawn Cemetery on the Parish line with New Orleans it's one of the largest, best kept and easier to drive in.

If you do come to New Orleans, make sure you spend half a day cruising around there. The bad thing is that they close pretty early (5.30 pm) and the sun is still very high.
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. The New Orleans Track Club even runs a race in it ! :)

Go to the funeral home office if you need information they have booklets with tombs details.
