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!

used the CD which guided you through the cemetery. CD was okay. Semi interesing. Not a "must do" but a pleasant way to kill 40 minutes

We've visited the Natchez Historic Cemetery several times as my wife's sister is buried there in her husband's family plot. Very beautiful grounds and so much history. We've stayed at the Natchez Grand Hotel in the area and right across the street from the river.

A great site made better with a driving tour CD -- we took the 30 minute tour (fast forwarding some of the cheesier parts of the CD) to learn about the most fascinating aspects of this historic graveyard. The Confederate grave sites, stairs into a windowed tomb, and "Babyland" are just a few of the wonderful highlights of this macabre... More

Well worth a visit. Graves and headstones from many years ago. And it is free to drive in. A great piece of history.
