Metairie Cemetery Private Walking Tour in New Orleans: Millionaires & Mausoleums

(4 Reviews )

Duration

clock2 hours

Overview

    Metairie Cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is frequently listed as one of the must-see cemeteries in the world. While walking beneath the shade of almost a thousand trees, you'll see the extravagant tombs of Popeyes’ founder Al Copeland, Ruth’s Chris Steak House founder Ruth Fertel, and vampire-novelist Anne Rice. You'll see the pyramid guarded by a sphinx, the cemetery's tallest tomb, the Islamic-inspired tomb that a Confederate general built for his daughter, the grave of the gunned-down gambler who never smiled, the Storyville madam who was ousted from her pink granite tomb, and the famous weeping angel bathed in blue. Your guide Sally Asher is passionate about revealing the unusual, outrageous and untold stories of New Orleans. An award-winning writer and professional photographer, Asher believes history isn’t about merely listing dates and facts, but the gentle collision of truth and narrative – scandals and all!
