I love going to old cemeteries and this one did not disappoint me. It was full of history and covered many generations. Many times I feel cemeteries tell more history about a place than the town itself and this could be said of this one also. This was well worth the hour we spent.

The cemetery is located on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. A solemn place to see all the graves of those men and women that protected our freedom so we can travel around this county without fear. Thanks to all of them!

As with any National Cemetery I have visited, it is A+. The grounds are well kept. The restrooms are clean. It exudes a somber, reverent, respectful, and honor attitude. Located just outside of town on cemetery road with a view of the river. It is a Great Location and just next door to the Historic Natchez Cemetery.

We biked around all the cemeteries in Natchez and did geocaching. All the cemeteries are so well kept and are all well marked as to various areas. A must see in Natchez.

Just like the city cemetery just down the road, this cemetery is beautifully situated amongst the hills of Natchez' many bluffs. It also has that quiet dignity of all the military cemeteries, and you can feel the history of the Civil War and all the other veterans who are buried there.

This cemetery is beautiful and yet, sad. I'm glad we stopped by. It's not too far from the Natchez historical cemetery. Doesn't take long to drive through.

We drove through first just to get a good overall feel for the layout. We stopped in some areas to look around. It was very interesting to see all fo the people who had come from other countries back in the 1800's. There were many from Ireland, Austria, Italy, just to name a few. We went in the heat of...

Lots of info available on the graves there- a perfect illustration of history in the city of Natchez. A very large place, interesting markers and colorful stories. They do an "angels on the bluff " presentation each fall where locals dress up like the deceased and tell their 'story'. A quick sell, so get tickets early for this great show
