Gretna Historical Society Hook & Ladder Cemetery Tour


A guided tour through Gretna's historic Hook & Ladder Cemetery will lead you from grave to grave where local actors, dressed in period costumes, will tell stories about the lives and times of various people buried there. There will be 13 tours starting at 4:45 and going to 8:15. Every 15 minutes they take a group through the cemetery where they will visit 8 tombs.  Light refreshments will be served by the Red Maple.

Tickets cost $20 and are available for purchase at The White House 218 Lafayette or the Gretna Tourism Center which is located in the caboose at Huey P. Long Ave and 5th St Wednesday-Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward the upkeep of the cemetery.
