“Second oldest cemetery in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

As noted earlier, I spend many afternoons wandering through old cemeteries, transcribing 19th century headstones for the internet and reading the inscriptions of poetry and prose. Not of interest to the ususal tourist, but does contain a large section dedicated to black gravesites.

“Old and notable graves, but very hostile inside staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2011

The grounds crew are all friendly-I have family,in-laws and friends buried here. BUT- The inside staff will challenge and harass you if they see you taking any photos of loved ones markers! First time we were looking for my wifes' grandmother, they wanted documents proving it and then refused to tell us where she is buried. We spent 6 hrs searching until we found her! There is also alot of crime in the area locale now, so lock your vehicles doors, etc
