|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
A block away north of Carrollton Cemetery No. 1 is the modest Saint Mary’s Cemetery, formerly the property of the Catholic Church of Saint Mary of the Nativity. New Orleans authorities took it over in a swap of land with the church in 1921. St Mary’s is bounded by Adams, Spruce, and Cohn Streets. As with Carrollton Cemetery, it backs up to Lowerline, the former boundary of Carrollton. St. Mary covers two city blocks, half the size of Carrollton Cemetery No. 1 four-block site.
While early New Orleans cemeteries are noted for their maze-like and crowded nature, these later suburban ones imposed an urban grid with main streets, side alleys, and space between tombs. Carrollton and St. Mary reflect the German proclivities of many early Carrollton residents and are visually connected to the neighborhood.
