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

Very old graves from the 1800's well cared for grounds. Found graves for several names we had seen earlier at the Jewish Temple tour.

This less traveled cemetery in Savannah is my favorite. It is incredibly beautiful. I have been here twice to photograph and always find new stone and iron to please. This year I was there when the azaleas were in full bloom as well as the dogwood trees. Quite fantastic.

This is one of the best cemeteries that I have ever been to. While it is not in the heart of the historic district like Colonial; you definitely should make the couple mile trip out. Old family crypts, plots. Well organized and maintained. Make sure to pick up a map! There is a section for confederate soldiers; many from Gettysburg.... More

Laurel Grove Cemetery was the second cemetery established in Savannah. It has two sections...the south which was primarily used for slaves and the north for everyone else. Both have beautiful monuments but the north section has the most impressive monuments in the cemetery. A number of famous people are buried there. Also, there is a huge section reserved for Confederate... More

Savannahians are buried at either Bonaventure or Laurel Grove. This is a beautiful cemetery with intricate statuary and headstones. It is easy to forget that you are in a cemetery and not a public park our outside sculpture display. Again, many famous Georgians are interred here. This is the final resting place of Juliette Gordon Lowe. Her grave is slightly... More

not two, but three beautiful, old, historic cemeteries. While not as "hauntingly beautiful" as Bonaventure or as old and important to state history as "Colonial Park" this lovely setting has its own charms as well as its own history as many of Savannah's famous are buried here. JG Low--of GS fame, Pierpoint--writer of Jingle Bells, a host of CSA gen'ls... More

The history of Savannah is within these walls, including the founder of Girl Scouts of the USA Juliette Gordon Low and her family, known for its contributions to Savannah. There are also areas dedicated to veterans of the Confederate States of America and the Jewish community of Savannah. Some of the headstones and areas need attention, but worth a visit.
