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.

We went on a weekday around noon and saw one other car the entire hour we were there. That is probably a good thing as we accidentally made one turn that was going the wrong direction, and when you do that, there is no place to turn around. There are tight angles and do not drive a large van into... More

Pick up a map/guide to the cemetery (audio guides are also available for a rather steep $15 rental) at the Natchez Visitor Center. Few of the names of those interred at the cemetery are likely to stand out, with the exception of some regional authors, and the families of some of the antebellum homes toured in Natchez. The lay-out of... More

being fans of Greg Iles we had to stop and see the Turning Angel, Jewish Hill and the cemetery... Very interesting. We felt like we were reliving his books.
