The Confederate Cemetery is located not far from B71. It is very peaceful but you can hear the faint sound of the traffic in the distance. Depending on where you are standing, you would think you are out in the country, but then you move just a bit and you can see the buildings of downtown Fayetteville through the trees.... More

What an interesting place .... but so many abandoned graves. It is peaceful and quiet and very interesting for any history buff.

Took a self guided tour of the Confederate Cemetary. Very interesting and well kept area. A nice piece of hidden history in the middle of Fayetteville.

My wife thought it was nice and peaceful but found the abandoned graves on the outskirts of the cemetery sad. The area is still and lends itself to reflection. The deserted areas are overgrown and in some areas the headstones are hidden in weeds. To me, this also provides for humble reflection.

Peaceful and serene, quite and peaceful and within walking distance of downtown Fayetteville. A knowledge of history will add greatly to understanding and appreciating the experience.

Beautiful, little gem! So thankful someone worked to keep it preserved over the years. An easy, short history lesson less than 5 minutes from downtown Fayetteville.

Amazing location, very well cared for cemetery and the history is unbelievable. The organization that cares for this cemetery is made up of a great group of people that really care about the cemetery and it shows in their efforts.

Visited this on memorial day so it was awash with confederate battle flags and looked great, the two caretakers were very helpful and instructive abd it was joy to visit. A little searching led to the oldest markers((turn left and go right to the back) along with the most unusual marker,for a man born in 1859, this would make him... More
