This is a very large cemetery! Be sure and get the CD so you can hear the details of many of the graves. There are many confederate soldier graves that are marked unknown.

I am fascinated by old cemeteries and the historical significance of this one makes it even more special. Sad to see so many unknown soldiers buried here. Darline Arrington Bridgeport, TX

If you are the type of person that likes graveyards this is one you don't want to skip. There are so many interesting stories that align with this graveyard. If you'll go to the visitor center in the graveyard, you can get a CD and a map and take a tour and it'll point out the highlighted graves and give... More

This is certainly worth a trip to see. The Angel that watches your every move and the tree lined avenue. Look out for the tool box to the right of the tree lined avenue

I buried my husband with full military honors here. The service was as I requested and done in a very professional way. This is a beautiful cemetery, very well kept.

A very beautiful cemetery with historic and modern designs. You will want to drive through the whole path of the cemetery. Absolutely gorgeous and a MUST see in Natchez.

I've read the Penn Cage novels and that was my reason for visiting the cemetery in the first place, but he doesn't do it justice: either in size or beauty. The monuments are impressive and the thousands of graves are an accurate representation of Natchez's rich history. It is truly a living art museum.
