“Legends of Savannah”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

From the start as you walk up to the archway opening, look up to see what is sitting on top of arch ~ if you are lucky when you are in Savannah go there if its a full moon and take a picture ~ really eerie feeling even if you just stand outside the gates.

“You are stepping on a grave”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

No matter where you step, you are stepping on a grave. That kind of creeps me out. If you go to the back wall, you can see all the tombstones that Sherman's men's tore out and they couldn't find where the bodies belonged. Some of the graves dates have been changed so dates don't add up.

“Old, old cemetery with interesting stories”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

I would definitely suggest a visit with a guide! There are some great historical stories you wouldn't know just walking around. This was my second visit to the cemetery and I learned so much more.

“Colonial Park Cemetery”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

This isn't as large as St. Bonaventure Cemetery, but there are some interesting facts about it and it's lovely in the spring. Confederate solders camped out in it during the Civil War and changed dates on some of the gravestones. I thought that was kind of fun to look for.

“"Like going back in time"”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

My wife and I enjoy strolling through old cemetaries and reading the headstones.
.I believe they stopped burying there in 1863, so this place was like a gold mine of old history. Just by reading the various grave stones you get to know a little about the person buried there. Take a walk thru and learn who the residence of the area were so long ago.
