Nice ride through. It's a large historic cemetery with plenty of rich history. Easy to get too as long as u stay on route and follow the signs to it.

Must see for all you Greg Isles fans out there. Beautiful historic cemetery just outside of town. Wanted to see the namesake from his book Turning Angel. Very beautiful. Read the actual history behind it.

We meandered around here for quite a while. The only other visitor was a jogger who seemed to know her way around well. A fascinating piece of history. Open until dusk.

Graced by gigantic oaks with Spanish moss hanging this cemetery is the resting place of many soldiers and everyday people. Was blessed to hear many stories of those who were laid to rest here

There is so much history here it is unbelievable. The cemetery is very well kept and beautiful. There are so many prolific people buried here. Definitely a must-see. Just be careful not to get lost!

To start, our B&B had a CD with a guided tour to this cemetary. It was a fantastic way to learn about the history of Natchez. It is very beautiful and even if you don't have this CD, it is worth going here for the...More

My great grandparents Charles Slocum & Lillie Hagwood Slocum was traveling from Bunkie, La. to Alabama (Charles died first maybe somewhere around1910 ? & then Lillie got sick with something like pneumonia not long after ? & the 5 children was put in an orphanage until they got older)I was told was buried in this cemetery. Is there a way I could find out? Thanks🇺🇸❤️😇

I really do not know this answer. If I were you, I would contact the Natchez Historical Society. There is a small building that I think is staffed during the week. We were there on the weekend, so could not tell you the... More
