We went here to pay respect to Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouts. It is a short drive from downtown to the cemetery. This is a very old cemetery with thousands of graves. It was clean and quite peaceful. If you are taking Girl Scouts to Laurel Grove, directions to her resting place are plainly marked along the driveway.... More

I'm fan of historic cemeteries...I love the statues that the older cemeteries are famous for. While I've spent numerous hours in Bonaventure photographing the finds and views there, I had never been to Laurel Grove North. Stopped in this trip...very helpful staff offering maps of the cemetery with background info on some of the more famous "residents", numbering system makes... More

This cemetery remained reasonably undisturbed during the Civil War and is home to some of Savannah's most distinguished residents. Juliette Gordon Low is buried here. I was particularly interested in finding the Mackay family plot, as I loved Eugenia Price's Savannah quartet. This cemetery is gorgeous and exudes peace and old-fashioned Southern charm. Makes for a nice, reasonably untouristy stroll.

We learned about the Laurel Grove Cemetery while taking the Old Savannah Tour. We had already visited the Bonaventure Cemetery and wanted to see this lesser known cemetery as well. Upon arrival we were immediately impressed with the beautiful grounds. The roads meander throughout the large expanse and we spent quite a while exploring as much of the place as... More

For those interested in cemetery history and scenery, this is the place to go. A large confederate section and many family vaults in various states of decay. Beautiful wrought iron work and the Spanish moss in the trees only adds to the ambience.

A simple want through Laurel Grove North and South will awaken the history of this nation. From the slave burials to the founder of the girl scouts, this location is full of things to see. The entry to the north cemetary is ornate and well marked while the African American section to the south was not. There is a whipping... More

This is an enjoyable, albeit smaller, cemetery than Bonaventure but it still offers beautiful and interesting historical journey. The area for civil war veterans is unique, and I love shooting some of the gravestone art (it's art to me) particularly in the Jewish area. I have to put a plug in for visiting the South Cemetery (it is across the... More

This is one of the most beautiful old cemeteries I've ever seen. We came here with a Girl Scout group visiting from out of state to pay our respects at the grave of the Girl Scout found, Juliette Gordon Low, who is buried here in her family plot. I loved all the ironwork in the fencing around the grave sites... More

I love the sign over the entrance, the tombstone of James Pierpont (see a plaque for him and his Jingle Bells song in Troup Sq) and walking among graves of Civil War soldiers. You can feel the history. Surprised to see that the grave site for founder of Girl Scouts is modest and not really well kept. I expected better.... More
