Oldest Cemetery in LA
Evergreen Cemetery was first established in 1877. Like many old cemeteries it contains an eclectic mixture of gravestones and markers as well as more elaborate statue monuments. It's no Forest Lawn or Pierce Bros. Westwood; the upkeep isn't great and it could probably use some TLC. But it does have a lot of personality. Evergreen Cemetery was one of the first desegregated cemeteries; many Black actors of the '20s and '30s are buried here.
