Pitot House and Save Our Cemeteries partner together to present a special tour on "19th Century Mourning and Interment Customs." The tour showcases both the historic Pitot House museum and St. Louis Cemetery No. 3. Tour groups meet at the Pitot House on Bayou St. John at 1:30pm and walk to the historic St. Louis Cemetery No. 3 with a trained and licensed tour guide.
