A favorite spot for painters, this lovely garden features a statue monument in the center of the garden park that was erected in honor of French mariners who died while nursing New Orleans' citizens during a yellow fever outbreak. The statue, called the Sacred Heart of Jesus, has inscriptions in French that read, when translated: "To the memory of thirty seamen, members of the crew of the Steam Corvette, Tonnerre, of the Imperial French Navy, who died at the Quarantine of New Orleans in August 1857. Erected by order of His Excellency, Admiral Hamelin, Minister of the Navy of Emperor Napoleon Ill." The names of the seamen and their rank are inscribed on panels in the base of the obelisk.
