Definitely worth a walk through to pay respects to the hundreds of historic figures buried here. Many figures from the Revolutionary War, and many are marked with a US 13-star flag. Interesting history. There is a very good self-guided tour throughout the graveyard. Certainly worth doing, learning some history and paying respects to those who fought for our freedoms.

Yes, there's an old cemetery and that in of itself makes for an interesting stop.

The whole area located approximately between Society Hill and Gayborhood is very nice. Rows of brick houses, some from 17th century, create an unique atmosphere reminding the stories by Poe and Lovecraft. And of course, the real history of this place is not less amazing. Worth visiting in daylight and at night.
