If any place can define that word, this is it. Small and well kept. Surrounded by a stone wall and Mother Nature. All you'll hear is the breeze; and occasional bird. Rarely see anyone else here. It's made even more Solemn, by the small, weather beaten bench, at the entrance. A Dedication to the Late caretaker, William Reese, from his... More

Loved my first visit to Finn's Point as an adult. So peaceful and serene. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. Nice place to just get away and enjoy the silence. Half mile walk from Fort Mott. Take the paved walkway or nature trail. Highly recommended.

This historic cemetery is tucked away near Fort Mott & is very well maintained. It is a little piece of history that is definitely worth a visit if you are visiting the Park..

Very quiet and thought provoking. Learned a little we did not know about local history. Trying to put yourself in that setting centuries ago is fun.

This is the most beautiful setting for a cemetery I've ever visited, and I've been to Arlington. Very small, totally isolated, and very well maintained. Several thousand Confederate soldiers are buried here, along with some German POWs, and also some U.S. veterans. This small cemetery is surrounded by a stone wall, and on the other side of the wall are... More

Finn’s Point National Cemetery is a short drive from the Delaware Memorial Bridge and Historic Salem City. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a beautiful site surrounded by tidal marshes and woods. If you park at Fort Mott there is a path that will lead you though the woods to the cemetery.

Fantastic visit for veterans, and military folk alike... but I love the nature trail thats right by Finn's Point. Its mythical and make me feels like I'm in another world. Marker 10 is exceptionally wonderful. Feels like there is super strong magnetics there. Even the birds fly in a circle there. Very beautiful.

Finn's Point is within Fort Mott. You drive down a small winding road, and it leads you directly into the Cemetery. Some maybe kind of off put by the location because part of the paved road becomes gravel before changing back to being paved since there is nearby construction on the area being done. At the end of the paved... More

After visiting Fort Delaware, I wanted to see the spot where my ancestor was buried, so I had to drive from Delaware City to Finn's Point. Approaching the cemetery from Fort Mott is by way of a road that looks abandoned and leading to some place you really do not want to go as it slowly degrades. But just when... More
