Although well maintained and apparently no restrictions to get around the cemetary, there was no guide or map that we could find to help navigate around or find interesting graves. The roads in the cemetary are very narrow with tight turns - fortunately our Nissan Maxima managed OK, but we don't know how we would have gotten around in if... More

Impressive view of the many military graves of those that had fought for our freedom. A good reminder to all.

Beautifully maintained cemetery that is well worth walking through. A visitors guide would have been very beneficial!

Ben Franklin supposedly said "Show me your cemeteries and I'll show you what type of people you have". If that's true, the people of Natchez must have been very caring and respectful over the past two centuries. This is a beautiful and well maintained cometary that is well worth parking and walking.

This cemetery headstone was used in a fiction book where the story is based in Natchez. Ilse is the author (can't remember first name). It was a little spooky because we went at dusk.

Even if you're pressed for time, make room for a drive through this historic cemetery. People have said it's beautiful. I'd say it's kinda mysterious and creepy, in that southern bayou, sort of way. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil has nothing over this place. I was most moved by the section dedicated to confederate veterans of the... More

Odd to say but enjoyed walking around here. Well maintained and good for history buffs with lots of interesting gravestones.

I love this place. Even when I was a kid I remember riding through the cemetery with my mom looking at the ornate wrought iron fences and detailed headstones. My mos said that when she was a kid my grandmother would bring her and my uncles there and spend all day, even packing a picnic lunch. It's just that kind... More

Very large cemetery. Drove through it just to see the old and unique grave markers. Followed the narrow roads winding through it.
