I love history and I love cemeteries! This one is full of headstones you probably won't see anywhere else - mainly thanks (unfortunately) to the Union soldiers who vandalized them. My daughter and I had fun walking in this pretty place.

This cemetery is nothing like Bonaventure. It's in the middle of town and isn't as big, but there's so much history here with some really old graves. I found it interesting that there are so many headstones leaning against one wall/fence of the cemetery. I'm...More

Beautiful park to walk through. Read the stones, read the history. Tough period. You will hear so many stories about ghosts in the cemetery. Appearing on pictures or videos, after... or direct experiences at sunset. Beautiful spanish trees as only the South offers

Colonial Park Cemetery is much closer to the general historic district than Bonaventure Cemetery. There are many victims of the Yellow Fever. Turns out, the cemetery was the sight of some vandalism many, many years ago by, I believe, young soldiers. So if you look...More

Nothing special unless your take a special interest in the history of Savannah and the south. Otherwise you better go to the Bonaventure Cemetery.
