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.

We got a map from the visitors center from some very nice ladies and went on a self guided tour. Totally enjoyed the tour and all the quirky people buried here

My husband and I went here on a walk. We both loved the history and beauty inside from old trees, to beautiful head stones and military grave sites. Perfect for quiet day or evening to relax.

Visited this site with some friends during my vacation. The one tomb of the little girl. I had forgotten some of the other stories. Such a peaceful location.

Last time we've been there was may be 6 yrs back or so. Today, while its still so very interesting... The graves are overgrown with poison oak and weeds. It seems abandoned and forgotten. What a pity.

Can't miss this. It's amazing. Especially if you have the slightest interest in old cemeteries/graveyards.
