“Fascintating cemetery”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

I love cemeteries in general, but this one was like no other I had seen. In this Moravian cemetery people are buried in groups or choirs, not with their families. For example, all the married women are buried together. And people are buried in order of when they died. The boring part about the cemetery is that no ostentation is allowed: so everyone has pretty much the same grave stone and marker. So no fancy angels and big monuments for the rich guys.

“Awesome”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

This cemetery is like no other. Everyone buried cronologically, by their place in the choir (when alive) men seperate from women. The visual is awesome.

“This is truly an amazing!”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

This place was so historical and you could not help but be sentimental to the idea of it all. We walked through and read names and epitaphs and dates... The church and Gods Acre is a "must see"...
