I wandered through it & enjoyed peaceful time on a bench. This cemetery has so much history. Took a lot of pictures of the old headstones & crypts.

Walking through here is a humbling experience. Call it odd but cemeteries to me are such an interesting place to visit. You feel the history that lived once before. As you walk through ouyou can read the names of Savannah's past, and see the headstone against the wall that were broken during wartime. Some are so old the names are... More

Great walk around the cemetery. Gaze at the old grave sites. On the East wall, there are monuments plastered to the wall that were destroyed during the civil was.

Pun intended. The cemetery was interesting to walk through during the daytime and read some of the old headstones. At night it takes on a different feel. I actually got some orbs or green glowing objects in my pictures while doing a ghost walking tour there. Make sure you see this one before Bonaventure Cemetery or else you'll be very... More

Take a leisure walk through the Colonial Park Cemetery and notice the date of birth and date of death. So many babies died very early in life. Yellow fever took the lives of so many people.

Lots of above ground crypts. Wall of headstones that aren't at their original sites. Lots of dogs being walked. Met a panhandler/preacher selling yellow palm roses.

Quite a beautiful and historic cemetery to visit. We spent hours there looking at all of the centuries old headstones and looked at those from the yellow fever epidemic, the civil war and even how the union soldiers defaced so many of them as they spent their nights in this cemetery when they took the city of Savannah. Excellent to... More

I recommend to spend more than an hour if you can because the wealth of interesting gravestones and monuments call for taking your time if you have any interest in history and learning about incredible people from years gone by.
