Our hostess at The Burn B&B recommended this self guided tour. She loaned us a cd that helped us on our journey. Many great stories. Enjoyed.

Be sure to get a map of the cemetery at the visitors center before going. The roads through the cemetery are very narrow and some of the turns may be difficult if you drive a large vehicle.

What a wonderful place! The history of a town in one place. Even the kids enjoyed this one. The turning angel was unique. Recommend this.

A must historical cemetary with stories about the families that is extremely interesting. Turning Angel was the name of a Greg Isles book.

Stayed across the street in a B&B. Walked over and looked at many of the gravestones. Wrought iron fences and brick and mortar fences surround many of the stones.

Natchez City Cemetery is an absolute gem located about ten minutes from downtown Natchez. The drive alone is worth the journey.

A few minutes from down town but worth a quick drive through this cemetery. Enjoyed the Confederate area with several tombs on unknown soldiers.

Loved this time in the area. People in town kept telling us to come have a look so we did. About half way through, we accidently ran across the trifold brochure that places the numbers with information. We quickly discovered errors all over that thing so went online and found out about these sites. The guy sitting in a rocker... More
