This cemetery sits right in between the Cathedral of St. John and the Owens-Thomas house, so it's convenient to walk through when touring historic Savannah. Most of the headstones are so old their inscriptions can no longer be deciphered, but multiple informative signs give you some insight into who is buried there. The setting is beautiful with the same giant live oaks and moss found around the city, and several benches allow extra time to linger. While we were there, an entire troup of girl scouts was picnicking between some of the gravesites, and we saw some locals walking their dogs too. We were also approached by a panhandler, but he was easily discouraged. ;)
I wouldn't go out of my way to see this cemetery, but if you are on the same block, why not?
