During this 2.5 hour tour, you will be joining a very exclusive club of people who have seen the cemetery after it closes to the public. Not since it opened in 1846 has this been an opportunity, but thanks to your very special local host, now it is. You are literally locked in the cemetery the entire time; for the right taker, there's no price you can put on the joy of that. Imagine having the serenity, stillness, and quiet of the cemetery, uninterrupted by the living world.
Stories stretch from the present day all the way back to Bonaventure's plantation beginnings in 1754. Our topics range from the funny and uplifting to the macabre at its most morbid. Some of the stories that will be covered include those of:
- A "hooch runner" for Al Capone
- A bizarre love story that ended in one murder and one visit to the electric chair
- Savannah's role in The DaVinci Code
- Lady Minerva & Jim Williams in Midnight in The Garden of Good and Evil
