Unlike the no longer standing housing projects in the 10th Ward, the 11th Ward is home to a number of them. The Ward itself includes sections of the Garden District and Irish Channel neighborhoods. The most visited landmark in the Ward is the Lafayette Cemetery No. 1.
If you’re itching for a good scare or you just enjoy soaking in the spirits of days gone by, the Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 is the oldest of seven municipal, city-operated cemeteries in New Orleans. The Ward is also home to several art galleries, including Anton Haardt Gallery Inc. and The Neighborhood Gallery.
Lafayette Cemetery No. 1: 1416-1498 Washington Avenue
