My husband is a civil war buff. He was enthralled with our visit here. Stop and get a map at the gate office; it will help you find the things you want to see. The cemetery is divided; south cemetery is easier to find and is where blacks were buried. North is much more difficult to find. It has no... More

Lovely old cemetery with some familiar names you will come across walking the Historic district; the Waving Girl, Andrew Low and the founder of the Girl Scouts Movement. Included a confederate soldiers section including hero's of Gettysburg. Usual abundance of Spanish moss and the various styles, shapes and wording you find in these old historic sites. Well worth a visit.

Different than Bonaventure Cemetary. Full of history but suggest doing some research before going there. Lots of military graves, some ancient headstones and some interesting markers. Doing some genealogical research we had hoped to find some ancestor's gravesites, but older sections are not recorded and the cemetery is VERY big.

Lots of people go to Bonaventure Cemetery, and it is truly lovely, but we discovered this cemetery on a recent Savannah trip and I am completely in love with it. Beautiful architectural details, statues and the ubiquitous Spanish moss.

Many of Gettysburg's dead find final peace here under moss laden oaks along with Savannah's 18th and 19th century residents.

This cemetery has 2 parts the north is where the whites were buried and the south is where the black people were buried. I cannot find the South on TA so I will put my review here. The South is an amazing historic site. I like cemeteries and history so it was nice to see these graves.

We went here to pay respect to Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouts. It is a short drive from downtown to the cemetery. This is a very old cemetery with thousands of graves. It was clean and quite peaceful. If you are taking Girl Scouts to Laurel Grove, directions to her resting place are plainly marked along the driveway.... More

I'm fan of historic cemeteries...I love the statues that the older cemeteries are famous for. While I've spent numerous hours in Bonaventure photographing the finds and views there, I had never been to Laurel Grove North. Stopped in this trip...very helpful staff offering maps of the cemetery with background info on some of the more famous "residents", numbering system makes... More
