interesting place to walk through and there are some good photo opps but the place is run-down, rusty and a bit of a safety hazard. I hope the city is going to invest some time and money to restore this historic site.

Love all the old graves. They gave confederate soldiers here also. Really old headstones. But I wish the town would take better dare of the cemetery. Headstones were leaning or gave fallen. Sunken graves also.

this beautiful old cemetery is well worth a visit. Ghost tours are hosted by the Apalachicola Historical Society in May and October.

All important historical figures buried here and it is worth the drive simply to visit the cemetery.

Incredible history, would like to see such an important site better cared for. Several Confederate and city founder's graves.
