I have always loved walking in cemeteries. This historical one is beautifully kept up and had maps waiting at the gate. It was a great self guiding tour!!

Our family loves old burying grounds, so this was right up our alley. You can take a guided tour or stroll on your own, which is what we did. A pamphlet is provided at the entrance. We had a fun time following the map and reading about all the different people and their histories. ****Free****

This was part of another tour, but I recommend visiting any above ground grave sites. They always have stories and excellent decor.

Beautiful setting, intriguing stories as you stroll as far into history as 1711...it feels like the ancient Moss covered trees create a haunting canopy that hides this historic burial site from the modern world...the self guided tour takes about an hour...and is well worth the time...awesome!!

The wife and I went here on the Hungry Town Bicycle Tour. Very interesting site to visit. Normally I wouldn't go out of my way to see something like this but it was pretty cool to see. So many stories.

Our kids love the old cemetery and the old head stones. The live oaks and Spanish moss set a peaceful and restful pause. The kids love looking for the oldest headstone.
