4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

It is amazing how hold this cemetery is. You won't believe who is buried here! I'm not going to tell you! Have a cocktail and go!

“Very cool cemetery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

We enjoyed the walk through the cemetery. There is a section of the cemetery devoted to sailors on the USS Maine, and some very old graves. Many of the tombstones are interesting!

“Kinky Cemetary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

This is a really different cemetary where most crypts are above ground. They even have three story crypt "motels". The best part about it is the crazy epitaphs written on many tombstones. However there are no guided tours that I know of.

“Pick up the Guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I am so glad the grounds keeper told us about the map. It is a neat little brochure with a map of the cemetery and also interesting facts about symbols on the tombstones. It is a peaceful place to just roam. If you are from up North like us then it will interesting to see above the ground graves. Just a nice little side diversion to get away from the crowds.
