10.0 Acres - This is a four-block cemetery bordered by 19th Street, Main Street, 21st Street and Florida Boulevard. This area was turned over to BREC to maintain during approval of the new form of government in 1947. It is now a National Historic site, where many important people are buried, including mayors, poets and soldiers. The annual Battle of Baton Rouge commemorative ceremony is held here each August.
