A little history about the Lafayette Cemetery #1 .......
The first French settlers buried their dead under ground; but, it soon became clear that was not such a great idea. Each time the city flooded, coffins and bodies started to float to the surface of the wet earth. It was soon decided to bury the dead in above-ground crypts, a practice that was already quite common in Europe. A number of tombs have fallen into disrepair and depilated due to the periodic flooding. Building the crypts above ground not only protected the coffins from getting flooded; but it also allowed the reuse of the vaults. Many of the crypts built were to accommodate large family tombs where coffins were stacked several levels high. When a family ran out of space, the remains of the oldest coffin would be placed at the bottom of the tomb.
