Beautiful Scenery.

We usually go twice a year to look at the many species of trees. Some are so rare, it is one of few places you may view them.

I hate cemeteries! Absolutely hate them! This place, however, is well worth the stop. The gothic revival buildings, and the well manicured grounds are just neat. I was here for a funeral for a cousin, and though I don't like spending time in cemeteries, I would go back again to visit my cousin, and to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

What a beautiful cemetery! We went to see a "crazy eye" tombstone which we found out about on a "road trip" app. If it was not raining we would have stayed for a long time. To our family, cemetery's are a peaceful place. We love looking at various grave markers, and this place has TONS. We view them as pieces... More

This cemetery is wonderful for walking and has marked paths but sometimes the signs are not set properly and it can be a little confusing to find your way. It is lovely in every season but especially in Spring and Autumn.

I have never seen a cemetery so beautiful! (It must cost a fortune to be buried here.) It has such well-tended trees and plants AND interesting grave-architecture! Quiet.... yet friendly. No restrooms for the public- that we saw - so one should probably plan accordingly. This place is huge!... we walked though a portion of it, than drove around most... More

This looks more like a park and has been meticulously maintained for years. Many famous local families are buried here.

This is a lovely place to take a walk. Planting are beautiful and the many and varied grave markers are very interesting. Pick up a pamphlet in the office and take a stroll.

We always visit cemetery's/graveyard's and this was a must see. The historically value of this lot is outstanding. Proctor and Gamble sites are normal. The spongebob stones are cool to see. The glass eyed statue was freaky for sure. The weeping statue was also freaky to see. Have a map of the cemetery before you go in. Its huge!

It is a beautiful cemetery and big too! You need a map to get around. There is plenty of history there and old buildings.
