This is a historic cemetery with a packed dirt walk through path. There is a brochure at the entryway that includes a map and description of many of the burial sites. Additionally there are many other tombstones to read.

This beautiful cemetery is on the National Register of Historic Places, and the gravestones and old live oak trees create a special ambiance. You can explore on your own or take a guided tour.

This graveyard is packed full of history! The graveyard has small maps available for visitors pointing the most popular and interesting gravestones. It is definitly worth walking through. Reading the many inscriptions is both fun and thought provoking!

This is an old one, unfortunately not in great shape but worth visiting. Bricked over graves, live-oak trees, little girl buried in a rum barrel unusual.

This quaint abode. Many different stones representing different generations and circumstances. The markers on some are easy to read others not so much.

Great if you like history, download the map online to read the details of all the marked graves. Wear good shoes if it is rainy!

This is a pretty cool place to just stop and look around. There are some unusual headstones and interesting stories about the folks buried there if you can research a little before going.
