Small cemetary hosting a lot of the confederate soldiers fallen in the civil war. Worth seing as you must visit the gorgeous cathedral next to it.

During the war graves were moved for the soldiers camp and for the placement of horses. Interesting info which is evident with the headstones lined up along the wall to the left of the entrance. The people buried here were all from the mid 1700's...More

Walked through here on our way back from breakfast. It is a very old cemetery and very interesting to hear about it on the trolley tour

I couldn't go inside because it was closed and they don't let ghost tours in, but we stood outside and listened to the stories. They have a huge amount of history here. Was fascinating to hear!

I desperately wish I could have read more tombstones and heard more stories. There is some amazing history contained here. My companion and I walked around quite a bit and read historical markers but it didn't feel like enough for the richness contained there!

The cemetery dates back to the 1700s and has some interesting history to go with it. Some of the old headstones and historical markers are pretty neat. It only takes a few minutes to walk through if you're close by it's worth checking out.

My amazing Segway tour, Chris, had some awesome stories about Colonial Park Cemetery. Walking through the cemetery felt creepy knowing there are mass graves and so many unknown bodies buried there.
