Located on a little hill overlooking the Missisipi, the Historic Natchez Cemetery is worth a visit. You can enter by car and go along the different sections, the Catholic, the Jewish and others. The view of the river is magnificent!

I think we visited all the graveyards in Natchez. They are all in the same general area. Very well kept and the military stones are well kept reminding me of Arlington a small bit...So many people from the past.

Interesting cemetery with a great deal of sculpture. We had to see the Turning Angle featured on the cover of Greg Isles novel of the same name.

We were guided by a friend who was able to tell us more than we would have learned from a guide book. It is a lovely setting

There are so many confederate soldiers in that cemetery. On the day of my visit, each one of them had a small confederate flag keeping him company; it was beautiful but sad. Our guide told us that there are not usually so many flags, but on that day I could see a sea of them and felt like crying.

We went here late in the day on our last day. Such an awesome cemetery I wish we could of had more time to spend here. you can see it from your car. So you do not half to walk if you do not want. Easy to find so go see it.

The historic Natchez Cemetery allows its visitors to take a trip back in time! Headstones dating back before the Civil War crowd the beautifully rolling hills of this immaculately kept historic landmark. Take a drive through the grounds any time of year, but make a special trip to visit in late October/early November during "Angels on the Bluff". Buy tickets... More

Our B& B offered us a cd of the City Cemetary. The commentary was really good and we drove slowly around the site gaining really useful information. Rather an unusual tourist site, but interesting never the less, as it gave information on the people who helped to shape Natchez.

If you're going here, plan for most of the day, in order to do it justice. There is so much interesting here, you can't rush it. You can go to the cottage and get a free pamphlet with minimal info, or better yet - go to one of the gift shops and get the book (much more info in it).

Driving through the historic cemetery was very different with small drives, etc. However, it was well worth it to get a sense of the historic of Natchez and the national cemetery as well.
