Although there are only several hundred visible burials, there are several thousand buried here from between 1750ish and 1850ish. This includes a 700 person mass grave of victims of the yellow fever epidemic. The hundred or so headstones mounted on the wall of the cemetery were dug up, broken and thrown about by Union Soldiers during their occupation of Savannah... More

My wife and I enjoyed looking around this cemetery. It has a fascinating history and there are several panels giving information about notable people buried there. A fascination 30-60 minutes.

Creepy cemetery in the middle of town. We got to start a haunted tour from this location and it was scary! Love the old history and the stories that come from certain areas of town!

This is a beautiful, old cemetery with lots of history. There are many moss covered trees and flowering bushes that add to its beauty. We toured it in about 30-45 minutes. Would have stayed longer, but it was close to 100°.

Peaceful, well-kept cemetery. I would recommend a walk through it after you have taken a city tour which will inform you of some of the famous people of Savannah.You will then be able to recall the famous names and stories, and be amazed at how old some of the inscriptions are, if they are even readable. I loved it because... More

One could spend all day here reading all the markers. It was just too hot for us to stand in the sun that long.

The tour bus drivers have several really good stories about this cemetary. A lot of folks jog and walk around the cemetary, and it's a busy area.

I loved the historic stones, great shaded benches to rest and came away with a sense of American history. This city is just so important to our country and the cemetery puts it in perspective.

This cemetery is a must see. This history here is unbelievable and is worth the trip. We have been to this cemetery several times and once you walk through the gate the air and feeling changes. I have been there during the day and gone back at night to look through the fence and the feeling again changes. This is... More
