We did a walking tour of this cemetery, it has really old grave sites but is very well maintained. The above ground brick mausoleums are intriguing to say the least. We ran into a "local" who approached us in the graveyard and tried to give us a mini facts tour of the site. Of course he had his own agenda... More

A very interesting park with many well marked historic graves. There are nice walking paths and many Revolutionary era graves with great history.

A beautiful cemetary steeped in history. Lovely to walk through and even more exciting if you enjoy old cemeteries. Do take a haunted night tour that includes this cemetary. Amazing knowledge!!!

I think this is a must see in Savannah. There is a lot of history here and as usual the city of Savannah has done a great job with the signage. Take your time, read the signs and soak up all the info.

We passed this cemetery twice on tours and decided to walk through it later on. Very old, but beautiful upkeep and grounds. Many Savannah historical figures are buried here.

Beautiful cemetery in the heart of town. Easy to walk to. Open from sun up to sun down. Great old grave stones.

As a Northerner visiting Savannah for the first time, and knowing that the city has lots of wonderfully preserved architecture from the 19th century, this cemetery made me look at and wonder about the seemingly really significant role the city and state played in the American Revolution - I will definitely look into this more when I get home!

I love history and learning about the past. This place is awesome and full of history. There are a lot of tombstones that are so weather worn that you cannot read them, even with that the place is full of stories to be told.

Would you like to have a bit of a fright...visit the Colonial Park Cemetery, especially late at night. You will feel the spirits come to life...or perhaps even get a glimpse of the little ghost child running thru the cemetery. (look that one up on YouTube!)
