This is located in the Historic District so it's worth walking over and seeing this very old Cemetery. It's a good idea to find a book with some history if this place if you're not going with a tour group.

The history of this cemetery is very interesting and it is very peaceful. If you feel you need a rest, you may sit in one of the many benches provided and admire the peaceful surroundings.

The history of this cemetery alone makes it a worthwhile place to explore. The wall of headstones with their weird dates makes inquiring minds scratch their heads. To know that this cemerery was desacrated during the Civil War makes you shake your head at the nature of people. Open 8am-8pm gives plenty of time to explore.

Beautiful. The wall of headstones is amazing to see. The moss strewn trees add to the spookiness of the historic site.

I have this weird fascination with cemeteries, and this one did not disappoint. It was so quiet with easy walking access. The inscriptions are interesting, and it would be easy to spend a couple of hours reading the old headstones. Because graves were plundered when the Yankees marched through, there are gravestones mounted on one surrounding wall, and these are also interesting to read.
