I'm a Greg Isles fan so we went to see the Angel. The lady at our BB gave me a CD for the tour. It was amazing. So much history. So very many stories. Was worth the trip if this is the only stop in Natchez.

The Cemetery is located just before you get to the National Cemetery heading north out of town. It has some beautiful older graves with a small confederate section. It is a little tight for bigger vehicles to get around as most the roads inside the cemetery are tight one lane roads.

My wife who is a big fan of author Greg Isles told us that this was on the list and its great to see the statute of the Turning Angel which apparently is featured in a few of Mr Isles's books. The grounds of the Cemetery are well kept and there is a lot of history here. Well worth a... More

Interesting! Read about the cemetery in Greg Iles books and seeing it brought it to life. Very unusual headstones from decades past.

Spending time among the early citizens of this lovely town, one gets a sense of how important honoring ones ancestors was in Victorian Natchez. Simple stones embellished with beautifully iron fenced plots and terraced in a way to gain singular stature within the riot of tombs makes order out of the chaos. Take time to stroll and you get how... More

I was born and raised in Natchez. This cemetery is a very historic place to visit with many interesting gravesites. Each year actors bring some if those buried there "back to life" by telling their stories during the Angels on the Bluff tours. The view of the Mississippi River from the top of the hill is amazing. My early trips... More

This cemetery is well worth a drive through. Beautiful rolling hills and scenic atmosphere. So many interesting family plots and tombstones.

A couple of years ago, we did the nighttime tour, where individual graves are explained by actors dressed the part. Highly evocative. It is enjoyable to wander around in the daytime. As a board member of my local cemetery association, I know how much work and dedication goes in to maintaining funereal spaces. The Romans and Chinese did not achieve... More

Lots of very interesting history in the cemetery. We especially enjoyed how the cemetery was laid out and the angel statue at the end for the five young ladies that parished in a fire.

This cemetery is huge and full of history. It's one of the more beautiful cemeteries to see. Rolling hills, beautiful monuments, views of the Mississippi River. You can get an audio tour too to learn more of the history.
