I'm one of those people who really enjoys walking through old cemeteries. For me, the older the better. The Beaufort Old Burying Ground is definitely worth a visit. The cemetery provides a map at the entrance for $1 which is recommended to get the most out of your visit. All the graves of note are clearly marked on the map. The map includes a little bit of info about the deceased in addition to providing the location of their graves.

Walking through this quiet and historic cemetery following the markings on the map provided a nice shady break on a hot day.

We recently visited this site on a school field trip. We had a guided tour that lasted about 45 minutes. The guide was an excellent story teller and kept the kids attention well. I would recommend that you use the tour guide to get the most out of your visit.

We stumbled upon the Old Burying ground as we were strolling up and down the beautiful streets of this historic town. We were fascinated by the early tombstones and the tranquil feel, It was late afternoon and the dappled sunlight shining through the ancient, live oaks created an amazing beauty amid the old azaleas set among the tree and gravestones. One of the most peaceful places we have ever seen. Tranquil beauty.

We did a walk through. There were pamphlets to read and match up with the numbers around the burial ground. It was interesting to see.
