More like an outdoor museum. Such art in some of the tombstones. I could spend hours her just taking photos, feeding the ducks. They also have historical tours.

We drove through most of this cemetery. It is very large, hilly and so pretty. Muhammed Ali is buried here. We weren't sure of the location, but googled it and were able to find his beautiful resting place.

Trying to fine Colonel Sander's grave was an adventure. Not because it was hard, because I didn't read the directions. If you like cemeteries then this is place for you. This place is huge. It has some very interesting head stones and some historical people...More

Beautiful cemetery, if you are looking for something in particular, make sure you grab a map. It's to the right of the guard shack.

Don't miss the historic graves of John Broadus and James Boyce!!! Plan of riding around for a while because these roads wind and curve. You will probably go around in a few circles, too!!!! But it's neat and worth the time.

We went to visit the famous burials at this cemetery but we found it to be full of beautiful monuments that told interesting stories. We spent almost 3 hours wishing we had more time.

This is a large cemetery and you will get lost! Even with a map we got confused. Perhaps more markers are needed at each intersection in addition to following colored, broken, and solid lines. It's beautiful with changing landscapes and many interesting and magnificent markers....More

The cemetary's rules are online. The rules state that pets are not allowed.
