Old Lorimier Cemetery

Established in 1808, the cemetery is believed to hold more than 6,500 burial sites, most of which are unmarked. More than 1,200 Civil War soldiers are buried there. A sidewalk serves as a north-south dividing line. It is said, Catholics are buried on the south, Protestants on the north. The east slope is believed to be the burial grounds of African-Americans.
