44 Notes

New Orleans holds many hidden treasures, curiosities tucked away for decades that are well-known by the neighborhood but a mystery to the wider world. One of these such gems lies in a part of town that has seen a bit of a resurgence over the past few years. That’s why this week’s GoNOLA Find is the St. Roch Cemeteries & Chapel, where more than a century’s worth of offerings have been left to a saint believed to heal all wounds.
