St. Louis Cemetery No 1. from Basin Street Station

The DeadSpace Project is a result of a two-phase documentation and conservation project focusing on St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 developed by the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Fine Arts Departments of Historic Preservation and Landscape Architecture with Tulane University’s School of Architecture/Preservation Studies in conjunction with Save our Cemeteries, Inc. and the Archdiocese of New Orleans.
