“Not too meaningful without a guide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The roads in the cemetery are narrow and the stones and graves seem to go forever as one winds through the labyrinth. I wasn't sure what I was suppose to focus on other than making sure I made the sharp turns without scraping the car. Maybe my heart just wasn't in it, we were rushed for time.

“Extremely Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We were in a group of four and drove through the Natchez cemetery while listening to a CD which explained points of interest. If you like history and enjoy stories of people lives, this is really goos.

“If you enjoy history you will enjoy a walk here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We enjoyed looking at the beautiful cemetary and the unique headstones and mausaleum. Don't miss the Turning Angel. A sad but touching story goes with it.

“Do Not Miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Fortunately, our hosts for the weekend provided us with a CD for a guided tour of the cemetery. The history and stories shared on the CD brought together all we had seen and learned visiting the mansions about town.

“As they lived, so they died”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

When you tour the stately homes in historic Natchez, you can understand the grand style which the homeowner lives were memorialized. Visit in the fall when they have night tours and actors relive the several stories of those legendary lives buried in this grand resting place.
