Istre Cemetery in Acadia

About

Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008, and on the Louisiana Trust for Historic Preservation‘s 2022 Endangered Places List. The Istre Cemetery is significant for its unique grave houses, small Acadian-style houses built to shelter the graves. No one knows exactly why they were built, but only 3 of the original grave houses still exist.
