“One of the coolest!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is one of the coolest cemeteries I've ever visited. The stories on the gravestones are so poignant and the landscaping/gardens are awesome. It is a great place to take your kids to see people history of Wilmington.

“Lovely gardens, fascinating history”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

When family was in town we visited for the interesting history. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the gardens were gorgeous! We wandered around for hours enjoying the old trees, blooming azaleas, and mossy headstones. No ghost stories on this winter morning and we learned a lot about Wilmington history.

“BOO”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

This cemetary has sooo many ghost tales tied to it. Part of the "Ghost Tour". It has been written about in many books. Look up the history and ghosts of Whilmington. The grave yard is a don't miss tourist site.
