One tip says the graves are free -- they are not. You must pay full admission to be able to walk the grounds around the mansion.

Graves of the Married Dogs

King Sam and Princess Grace were in love. The two Labradors had horse-drawn coaches take them to their nuptials. The cake was delicious. They tied the knot November 1, 2003. Sam passed away before Grace. Grace died recently. They are buried at the pet cemetery at Houmas House. In addition, the movie, "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte" was filmed here. One room in the mansion is dedicated to both the dog wedding and to Bette Davis.
