PRC 47th Annual Meeting and Walking Tour of Historic Metairie Cemetery

PRC’s Annual Meeting will celebrate the achievements of the Preservation Resource Center and highlight the history of beautiful Metairie Cemetery, which dates to 1872 and is the final resting place for several Louisiana governors (including the state’s only African-American governor, P.B.S. Pinchback), eight New Orleans mayors and many notable New Orleanians, including Tom Benson, Al Copeland, Louis Prima and Andrew Higgins. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and filled with magnificent statuary and architecture, Metairie Cemetery originally was a race course, and the oval shape of the track is still visible. PRC’s Annual Meeting will include a short walking tour of some notable tombs, exploring the history and architecture of this beautiful burial ground. The meeting also will include remarks by PRC Executive Director Danielle Del Sol on the organization’s accomplishments during the past year, including its work during the COVID 19 crisis; the election of new PRC officers; and the passing of the presidency from Gordon McLeod to Leslie Bouie. This event is open to PRC members only; RSVP required. Attendance will be restricted to 50 people to comply with all city and state COVID restrictions. Masks required for all participants. Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP and confirm your membership status by May 19 with interim Director of Development Whiton Paine at wpaine@prcno.org.
