After Katrina, many of the cemeteries were damaged and Mimi had an opportunity to go to New Orleans and help The Preservation Trade Network, Save Our Cemeteries and Tulane School of Architecture with the restoration.

 

All attempts were made to preserve the original fabric of the mausoleums. We saved the original bricks, cleaned and reused them to rebuild. 
 

Virginia Lime Works did a mortar analyses and donated the mortar to the restoration.

Marble tombstones were found in pieces covered by the mud from the flooding.  We documented were they were found and carefully cleaned them in a nondestructive manner.  Then we constructed a marble housing to support and preserve the tomb stones.
