“Love this cemetery!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

This is our second visit here, last visited in 2006. Stop at the entrance and pick up a map inside the Cemetary building. There is a tour route to take around the cemetery which contains many points of interest and interesting tombstones and crypts. This is not only a cemetery, but a historical point of interest and contains more than 18,000 confederate who died in the Civil War.

“watch the hour so they don't lock you in”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

we spent so much time looking around this fascinating cemetary that we lost track of the time and nearly got locked in for the night. The amazing statues of dogs standing watch over the graves makes you want to cry--these memorials installed on the graves so many years ago-but still sending quite an intense message today. Don't miss this place.

“Lot of History, Great to Cruise around in”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I always take my out of town friends here. There is so much history and it's a beautiful cemetary. The place is huge, you just ride in and can see everything right from the car!

“Peaceful cemetery full of history”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This cemetery will appeal to American history buffs. I was surprised by how large the cemetery is, full of mausoleums, monuments, and headstones dotting the rolling hills. You can walk
(which would take quite a while) or drive around and get out to see areas that interest you.

Probably the most notable tombstones are several US presidents and Jefferson Davis (president of the Confederacy). Many of the tombstones are from the 1800s. This was a nice free historical site, tucked away in a residential neighborhood.
