Comments: The sexton cottages in the historic New Orleans cemeteries are the last architectural vestiges of a more personal funereal experience. The cottages are vital to preserve and keep maintained...they are important in the American architectural record (of which too much has been lost due to 'convenience'). New Orleans has lost enough architectural history. I identified the one at Lafayette Cemetery #1, but ALL deserve to be saved.
Please preserve the sexton cottages.
