We enjoyed reading and being told the history of this cemetery while walking through it and seeing the detail etched in many of the tombstones. It's a must see for any history buff or Civil War historian.

Lots of History and Very Well kept up. We really explored all of the headstones and read all of the stories online about the different experiences other people had there.

I was quite moved by this beautiful, old cemetery. It is located in the beautiful neighborhoods and there is no cost. We actually walked there, because we got on our bus and missed it.

I passed by this cemetery on the Dead of the Night Ghost Tour which was phenomenal! Decided that we wanted to go back and walk through and look at the grave stones, etc. Very beautiful cemetery.

History abounds in this cemetery it has been lovingly restored with great historical markers detailing important Southern Statesman. Very reminiscent of the Old North Church in Boston

My husband and I walked down here a few times on our stay in Savannah, exploring this cemetery. It's incredibly old and incredibly cool. Many burial plots here date back to the Revolutionary War! It's a good size but not so big that you can't walk it. Compared to Bonaventure this would be a short stroll to walk through it.... More

As you walk the historic district this is a must see. Very old graves and family crypts. You can just stroll around and read the plaques about some of the people buried here.

We were in Savannah for a few hours and walked through this park. It was so beautiful. There are historical markers showing where people are buried. Very picturesque!

The Entrance Gate has the inscription "Daughters of the American Revolution" is a well manicured cemetery. As we viewed the headstones which were weather worn to a point you couldn't read the names or the time of death.....we did notice many were of children. During that time, diseases were probably the reason for such a large amount of young children... More
