The "Marie Laveau" Tomb has been vandalized!
In December, the tomb was covered in pink paint. It was then pressure-washed, causing even more damage. Restoration efforts are underway, but SOC still needs to raise $5,000 to complete the repairs.

Take a cemetery tour in St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 or St. Louis Cemetery No. 2, just outside the French Quarter, or in Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 in the Garden District.
