Cemetery

The City of Biloxi has a city-maintained cemetery that stretches from U.S. 90 on the southern end to north of the CSX railway off Irish Hill, east of White Avenue. It is located west of the former site of Fort Louis, which indicates it may have been the burial place for early French settlers. The oldest existing tombstone is French-inscribed and bears an 1811 death date. The cemtery features a number of 19th century above-ground monuments and barrel-vaulted crypts. These reflect the ties between Biloxi and New Orleans, where this type of interment is necessary due to the high water table.
