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.

During the month of Nov. they hold the annual Angels on Bluff in the Natchez City Cemetery that is a extremely popular event, only for 1 weekend. It sells out quickly when tickets go on sale, I think around August.

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.
