The yellow building is "Basin St. Station" it's a welcome center for tourism, and there is a reception hall on the roof. I took these pics from their veranda. They would be willing to let us use it in exchange for a mention in the credits. If a mention is not possible, they may still allow us to use it. The 2nd pic is a wide shot of the cemetery. The grass that you see in the 3rd pic is the protestant section, where Latrobe's placard resides.
If you are facing the cemetery (pic #1), there are housing projects to the left along Conti St. (pic #2) and to the rear. The front of the cemetery runs along Basin St. (pic 3). The entrance to the cemetery has a wrought iron cross (pic 4). To the right of the building is St. Louis St. (pic #5)
This is where Latrobe was supposedly buried. The protestant section is located in the rear of the cemetery and used to be much larger but was reduced in size due to expansion of the city. It's largely just a grassy area with some marked and unmarked graves. Nobody knows where Latrobe's body actually lies.
