Cool cemetery -- and very convenient, right in the historic district. We had a ghost tour app of Savannah which worked well for us ($3, for 4 of us to share) and had good info on the cemetery. Great for photographers. Take time to read some of the headstones, very amusing. Our teens loved that part! Free, too.

This cemetery is very beautiful. It's downtown, so it works well as a brief (and free) walk as you are exploring the area. We also enjoyed reading the historical signs scattered throughout.

I'm not a huge history fan, but there is so much information on the really interesting history of Savannah in this cemetery. At night they have tours, and you can learn so much!

Found several graves where it indicated more than 1 person buried in the same area. Very interesting, if you are into historical deaths. Each paid tour gives facts regarding the cemetery.

Examine the gravestones that the Civil War troops camping here left standing. For fun, they changed some of the dates so that family members seemed to have been born to young children. This was a good place to rest. Read the interesting plaques about the history and why so many tombstones are stacked to one side of the cemetery.
