This is part of the Charlotte Liberty Walk (that some how most people living there, including the police officers I tried to ask info of, don't really know about). I have always found cemeteries interesting places and like to see how the dead have been...More

Liberty Walk is a self guided walking tour through Uptown Charlotte. It is marked by informative historical plaques in the sidewalk. You can also get a brochure with more information from the visitors bureau in the convention center. I highly recommend the walking tour itself...More

Visitors should spent a hour here reading the bronze plaques and head stones. Walk thru the park and try to recall the possibilities of life back then versus the modern times seen in the skyline surrounding. The old Presbyterian church on the south side, Science...More

"Hidden" in plain sight in the middle of beautiful downtown Charlotte lies the Old Settlers Cemetery. Surrounded by wrought iron fence you will find the remains of many founders of the city of Charlotte. Informational signage indicates the location and the inhabitants of the graves...More

Old Settlers Cemetery was an interesting slice of old Charlotte's history. The graves are grouped by family or in areas, not in rows. There is plenty of information available to read of the history of the first settlers. The adjacent church is also historic and...More

We found this while following the Liberty Walk trail, which doesn't seem to be an attraction included in TA yet. This is a small cemetery with mostly 1800s people buried in it. This is not as interesting as the Granary Burial ground in Boston, which...More
