In this cemetery you can see the difference in headstones and famous Southerners from the early seventeenth century through today. The mausoleums, intricate headstones hand carved in Europe centuries ago show craftsmanship unavailable today. It is a historians dream!

If you have the time to go you should, but get the cd so you know what you are looking at. We didn't know about it until afterwards and it would have been helpful. We did however enjoy ourselves.

On this trip back to Natchez, I visited this cemetery where five generations of my family are buried. The cemetery is beautifully landscaped, and has many truly ancient oak trees. The narrow roads are lined with Crape Myrtle which are draped in Spanish moss. I hadn't been to the cemetery in many years, and I had forgotten how really interesting... More

We loved sharing this wonderful cemetery with our friends. As Greg Iles' fans, it was just as he had described in his books A real must-see!

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.
