Saint Joseph Cathedral Courtyard
East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana

401 Main St
Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Lat: 3027'04"N, Lon: 9111'13"W

Contributed by Joel Manuel, May 03, 2002 [joelm@ethics.state.la.us] Total records = 43.

Located at 401 Main Street, in downtown Baton Rouge (on the corner of Main and Fourth Streets).

The first three Bishops of Baton Rouge are buried in a courtyard on the eastern side of the Cathedral. Plaques containing inscriptions for each Bishop are on the wall of the Cathedral, directly behind each grave. Thus, this is a complete listing of the graves here.

I have transcribed this file from recordings I made when I personally visited this burial place Mar 03, 2002.
