“A sense of connection with history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Some find cemeteries creepy or unsettling. But to walk amongst the tombs and markers and see how long ago men and women died, to recognize famous names from American history... This cemetery is a reminder of our mortality but a connection to our national history. It is well maintained and signed as well.

“Fun to browse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

While not as ornate as Bonaventure, the cemetery is interesting and it's fun to read the tombstones. I wish there was a map to help point out more interesting sights. Easy to get too!

“Interesting headstones in Colonial Park Cemetery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

My wife and I walked through Colonial Park Cemetery to look at the old historic headstones. The designs and inscriptions were very interesting. It is in the Historic District on Oglethorpe Ave.
