“NICE cementary!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Stop by this cemetary if you have the time, it was very nice! Its a good size cementary, but the markers on most of the tombstones are worn really bad.

“History and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Very old cemetery-back to the civil war and the yellow fever. Many of the stones were placed on back wall for they were so old and falling apart. Great stroll and interesting facts.

“Very neat, well marked”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

With all the historic markers that have worn down over time, the cemetery has marked notable gravesites in bronze, which is helpful.

“Great History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

We were fortunate to have a great guide on the trolley who told us all about the cemetery. So much so that we were able to fill in a couple of fellow tourists on the story behind the broken headstones attached to the back wall. Great spot to visit.

“Original Savannah Cemetary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

This cemetery holds the remains of quite a few original settlers. Many date to the late 1700's. There are also civil war graves here. Very interesting.
