We visited several cemeteries and loved the Really old markers, including one where a signer of the Declaration of Independence was buried.

This is a cemetry/park that deserves a visit. It contains a lot of history not only for the Local area but for the USA as a whole. It is well kept and nice in the sun.

This cemetery gives evidence of the events of days gone by. If one notices-along the back wall of the cemetery you will find many headstones attached to the wall. The reason for this is when Sherman marched to Savannah, his men made camp on this location. They knocked down headstones in order to put up their tents. When they left,... More

We did notice that many of the head stones were difficult and at time impossible to read due to their age, which is expected. The cemetery was a short distance from Bay Street , but note that it...

Nice cemetery for a stroll with good signage for the historic figures buried here. This cemetery is easier to visit than Bonaventure as it is much closer but is smaller. Visiting makes me want to learn more about the lives permanently trapped here.

WOW! If you love old cemeteries full of history, then this is your kinda place! Look for the tombstones that have been altered during the civil war by the north. We saw one where it had been altered to say that person was 421 years old! One where the mother was 17 and her husband was 12 maybe? and their... More

History abounds at this park. The park has one of the signers of the Declaration and has some historical figures buried there.
