This Cemetery was very well kept. The staff were very well informed about the history of Camp Chase. It was steeped in history and you could feel the history that surrounds you. It was very interesting. It is well worth a visit.

Like all of the site. I took my grand-kids there as an educational visit. The Confederate Band was there and a roll call was given for deceased. All was professional.

This cemetery was established to entomb the Confederate soldiers that died while imprisoned at camp chase which was a prisoner of war camp run by the union army. There are several hundred soldiers and officers buried here. If you visit please show the respect they deserve. It is located on Sullivant ave near Hague.

This cemetery is close to the downtown area of Columbus, OH. It is well maintained but the ground is uneven so use care when walking around the grounds. Keep in mind there is no parking at the actual cemetery but it's easy to park nearby and walk. We walked down each row of headstones...each one marking the life of someone... More

I saw the cemetery on tripadvisor and thought I'd take a look. It's not that out of the way, but I did think I was in the wrong area. It doesn't feel like an area where this cemetery would be. It's pretty small, but very interesting if you're into history. The cemetery is free to visit, but there are "no... More

A very nice cemetery that has taken on a very nice transformation. It is walled on four sides and have a caretaker that mows the grass when needed.

The center stone reads, "2260 Confederate Solders of the War are buried in this enclosure". As we walked in the entrance a settling calm came over me. The white head stones were no longer perfectly aligned due to the many years of existence, never-the-less, it is a beautiful cemetery, filled with privates to ranking officers from Tennessee to Florida and...

Our family enjoys learning and discovering local history, especially the Civil War. It was a surprise to learn there was a Confederate Cemetery in Columbus, OH. Didn't know anything about it, so it was a nice little jaunt for the kids. You may drive past it looking for a vehicle entrance, but there isn't one. You will have to find... More

Columbus was home to a Confederate POW camp during the Civil War. This is the final resting place for those Confederate soldiers and civilians who died here. Located on Sullivant Avenue west of the Downtown area, it is easy to find parking on nearby side streets and a walk through the cemetery reading the inscriptions on the gravestones is sobering.

This cemetery was in the middle of Columbus. We found it "accidentally" while looking for attractions via the GPS. It's a bit out of the way, and you have to park behind the cemetery and walk around it to enter from the street side, but it was fascinating that such a place exists in Ohio. Reading the names and dates... More
