Vacation #2: St. Louis Cemetery No. 2, NOLA

This was the only St. Louis cemetery in NOLA (there are three) that I hadn’t yet photographed. It’s where Henriette deLille is buried, the first American-born person of African ancestry to be declared Venerable, which is like 2 steps away from full-blown Catholic saint. (It goes Servant of God -> Venerable -> Blessed -> Saint.) It’s also the St. Louis that most tourists think is No. 1 when they’re driving into the city, because it’s visible from the freeway.
