  • This is a great place to see. The crypts r people buried atop one another. They have the grave of dueling brothers. They have graves of famous people. Unlike any graveyard I've ever seen!  more »
  • Very well kept and interesting cemetery with historical markers to read up on some of the cemetery's permanent residents. Very pretty during the day, a little spooky walking by at night!  more »

  • It always amazing to learn about the history of Savannah. They have ghost tours in that you can sigh up to get more historic knowledge. Photos taken 9-13-2019.
  • Densely rich historical information and graves are well respected. Didn't like the fact that a graveyard was turned into a park where you can jog through it or take your dog to relieve itself on nearby markers but nice place nonetheless.
