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

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
