You can rent a CD, from the Natchez Visitor Center, for your car as you drive thru the cemetery that narrates your drive. Also, the turning angel that Greg Isles uses in one his books is located in easy viewing.

We rode our bikes all around this cemetery and did geocaching in and around the area. It is so well kept and organized into various areas.

The graves go back to the establishment of the oldest community on the Mississippi River. Older than New Orleans by three years. An unexpected adventure and travel through time.

An absolutely beautiful little cemetery in the bluffs. The hills of Natchez are undulating, and the cemetery winds its way through them. Definitely worth a stop by, and the National Cemetery just up the road is equally beautiful.

After reading Greg Iles' book, Turning Angel, we HAD to visit this cemetery. It was interesting and one of the oldest cemeteries I've ever visited. I tried to imagine what their lives had been like when they lived. There had been so much change in their lifetimes.

Spend the $15 to buy the self-guided tour CD that can be purchased at the Visitor's Center. The cemetery is huge and you can spend a lot of time searching out the historical markers without the help of the CD. It is beautifully kept and serene. Loads of history here!
