Gives you a sense of our history and seeing the naval grave stones from the early 1800's is like looking at old art.

We wandered through this lovely, picturesque cemetery and found it to be so peaceful and relaxing even though it sits in the centre of bustling, historic Halifax. A worthwhile stop.

Nice, clean and well maintained burial grounds! Quiet spot to find your mindfulness while enjoying the preserved tombstones.

Charming old cemetery dating back to the 1700. Very well preserved and full of old tombstones with inscriptions from another era. Historical place well worth a visit.

If you love cemeteries this is for you. Smallish but packed with history. Look for the quirky headstones like ”DIED JENUr1853” (I can’t do this on iPad but the 3 is really little because he’ d run out of room....)

Given that this cemetery dates back to the 1700"s, it is beautifully maintained. We specifically went to see Captain Ross's grave who was the Canadian who burned down the original White House.

Old cemetery with interesting stones, etc. It was next to St. Mary's so we went there but unless your are into old cemeteries I wouldn't go out of my way.

Some people think visiting burial grounds is morbid, but for history buffs it's too interesting to pass up. Particularly moving and sorrowful to see all of the gravesites of children buried here. It makes you realize the conditions and diseases people were dealing with in that period of time. I recommend seeing it before or on the Ghost Walk of Historic Halifax.

...the oldest grave dates back to 1749, the same year Halifax was established and named by the British, after the 2nd Earl of Halifax. The cemetery is quite large, and many of the headstones are so old that it’s difficult to read the inscriptions, but there is an strange silence to the place once you are inside, strange as it’s surrounded by roads on all sides. Definitely worth strolling into for a walk around.
