The New Orleans Musicians Tomb
THE NEW ORLEANS MUSICIANS TOMB
This historic tomb which since the 19th century had interred the Sacred Union Society and the Barbarin Family now also acts as the New Orleans Musicians Tomb. The first burial was that of Lloyd Washington from the Ink Spots on October 23, 2004. The idea to provide free burial to musicians was conceived by Anna Ross Twichell. Burial space was donated by the Barbarin Family and the tomb was restored by Friends of New Orleans Cemeteries. The iron cross was forged and the blue note was cast by glass artist Mitchell Gaudet.
