This cemetery is really old. They stopped interments in 1850. Most of the gravestones are worn so much that they can't be read. There are a few historical markers but we wished we had found a detail map or guide to use for the cemetery. If they would ban all the Pokemon Go people it would have been a perfect... More

An amazing look back at the lives that were part of savannah's history. The diverse population and the stories behind many are fascinating. Walk through and read the headstones of the many that died and how they contributed to the city.

Has some very great looking trees and gravesites to check out. Would be even better to walk around after dark.

If you have time, I would visit it, but if your time pressed I would go see something else. The cemetery is so old that the tomb stones are not even legible. It's walking distance to everything.

Oaks and Spanish moss, flowers, the cemetery is small and beautiful. Interesting: Over 600 hundred people were buried there in a common grave following the 1820 Yellow fever epidemic. Many headstones dates were changed and graves looted by the Federal troops who occupied the cemetery during their occupation of Savannah.

This cemetery is like the ones in scary movies. Very old but very beautifully landscaped. It was pretty neat to see!

This is an old cemetery, which locals kind of use as a park. I wish I could have found a guide or docent for this site. I note, however, no one has been interred since the 1850 or 60's. It is a popular stop for haunted tours. I guess there have been a number of sightings in the area,, so... More

We loved hearing the stories about the different areas of Savannah and this place had perhaps the most interesting story of all that we heard.

Over 10,000 people buried here! The graves are so impressive and this cemetery is so beautiful! My favorite was the wall of broken gravestones.
