Loved lingering around and finding out a lot about the history of the town, love reading the old stones. Again, the homeless tend to populate those areas to try and sell reed roses.....keep your eyes open.

This was truly a lesson in Savannah history. Lots of signs up telling the stories. Really a beautiful place to see! Open until 8. Even after closing you can walk around it on 3 sides and see a great deal of the cemetery.

This cemetery in the middle of the city has some very famous people buried there. Worth walking through and just reading the names and dates.

While visiting Savannah on our on personal "ghost tour" we visited the colonial cemetery. The cemetery is very interesting with a lot of history tied to it. Would recommend.

Colonial Park Cemetery is beautiful and haunting. (And haunted, too, I hear, lol.) There's so much fascinating American history here. Definitely stop to take a stroll through and read a few plaques and headstones as you're touring the historic district.

We visited this cemetery on our tour of Historical Savannah. Being here was a very somber experience. We saw where many slaves and slave owners were interred. There was even a wall with random head stones that were misplaced. This cemetery is known to be haunted but we didn't experience anything out of the ordinary.

We spent part of a day wandering Colonial Park Cemetary. It was really interesting reading the headstones and the different markers in the cemetery. Thoroughly enjoyed it and learning the history of Savannah via the Cemetary.

If you are exploring the Historic District, you can't miss this place. Without reveling too many details, very interesting, rich history, many famous people buried there, and many ghosts of course. We stopped by during our 8pm ghost walking tour, so we did not hear the scariest stories, but the ones we heard were "scary" enough. The cemetery extends beyond... More

We past the cemetery on our hearse tour and I thought it was odd that there is a play ground right outside the gate. Also, Phyllis informed us the fence around the cemetery is not the actual perimeter and that the cemetery extend out into the street. You can see it what she means because there is apart of the...
