This is a beautiful Cemetary. For those of us who enjoy this type of attraction it is full of history and stories. We actually bought a cd that mentioned the relative. We did not use it to tour the Cemetary but wish we had because it was full of interesting stories that we enjoyed listening to on our car drive... More

History in this cemetery was awesome. The ornateness of some sites unbelievable. Had used a book about the cementery that encouraged me to find specific sites. Pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Our host suggested that we tour the famous Natchez Cemetery to relax after driving. Not everyone may enjoy cemeteries, but if there is any chance that you would, then this is surely the one. Be sure to pick up a brochure from your host or the visitor's center. There are many beautiful stones from the wealthy families of old Natchez... More

Between visiting antebellum homes, take a visit to the interesting cemetery. Be sure to rent or buy the CD guide through it. Takes about an hour, easy to use. Very informative.

We had the added treat -- thanks to our hosts at the Oak Hill B&B -- of borrowing an accompanying CD to do a "drive through" tour with narration of fascinating facts. But this is a good place for roaming on foot, anyway, which is how we toured most of the place. Lots of history here, along with peace and... More

As recommended by other viewers we stopped at the Natchez visitor center to rent the CD ($15) tour of the cemetery. Without the audio tour, I think we would have been disappointed. There are a number of interesting historical facts and graves to view in a well maintained site with a beautiful view of the Mississippi River. Definitely worth the... More

I love getting to visit here. The grounds are rich in history. Bring a map with you because you may need help finding the more lively residents. If you can find a book to guide you through the headstones even better. You can watch the sunset from the top of the hill where there is a flag and bench. Be... More

This cemetery is full of history and well worth a visit. We were fortunate and had a CD which made the visit much more informative.

We toured the Natchez Historic Cemetery and this place has a lot of history. We stayed at the Bisland Bed & Breakfast and they furnished us with a CD that led us through the cemetery. It give us a play by play of all the interesting people that once lived in Natchez and now buried in the historic cemetery.

We drove through as the weather was crisp and windy. Started just before dusk so we only saw a portion of this beautiful and historic cemetery as they close at dusk. The military and Jewish areas and gravestones were most interesting and had we known, we would have gotten the CD tour available at the Natchez Visitors Center where we... More
