Mount Olivet is much more than a cemetery and mausoleum—it is an important and lasting tribute to the heritage and stories of the New Orleans community. Conveniently located on Norman Mayer Avenue, Mount Olivet’s historic grounds feature views of impressive tombs and copings and have provided generations of families with a quiet sense of comfort and peace of mind.
