On a quick trip to Natchez my husband and I went to the City Cemetery primarily to see the statue of The Turning Angel. The author, Greg Iles, is from Natchez, and we had read all of his books. One of them is titled "The Turning Angel." So, we just had to see the real thing.

I don't usually go to cemeteries but this one is a must see. You will want to take a camera with you because there is so much beauty. It is a very old cemetery with so much history. I love this cemetery. TIP... the roads are one way so you will want to pay attention otherwise you may have to... More

If you have time do go to this cemetery. It is very large but you can drive around. If you like visiting cemeteries you will definitely enjoy walking around this one.

Run Wasps. We did not get to spend too much time here. My daughter was attacked by red wasps and she is allergic. I wish I could have spent all day walking through it.

Rode through this cemetery, but did not walk around. It is huge, has many very old monuments and later ones also. Interesting if you like historical sites.

Our hostess at The Burn B&B recommended this self guided tour. She loaned us a cd that helped us on our journey. Many great stories. Enjoyed.

Be sure to get a map of the cemetery at the visitors center before going. The roads through the cemetery are very narrow and some of the turns may be difficult if you drive a large vehicle.
