Loved walking through this cemetery to see all the grave stones and markers of the colonial people -- sad that some of them died so young -- what a great part of history.

Cemeteries give one a glimpse of the past and make one ponder what those people's lives might have been like. It can be rather sad too, as we saw one grave stone with the names of a sister and brother, both young children, 5 and...More

We visited after learning some of the history of the cemetery on tours the day before. It's a really lovely place with interesting old graves. The tombstones that were found outside of the borders of the current cemetery are all attached to the back wall,...More

This cemetery has many old gravestones with many notable people in early Savannah & Georgia history in it. The cemetery is well-maintained, and the paths are relatively easy for a wheelchair to navigate. It also has a cool history to it too.

Located in the middle of the historic downtown, we used this as the starting point of a ghost tour and returned during the day to walk through. Wonderful history and a beautiful place to visit.

This is an interesting cemetery to visit, but there are only a few headstones that you can read. I think it might be worthwhile for the city to go ahead and restore the headstones so that you can appreciate who is buried there, and maybe...More

This is a very old cemetery in the middle of Savannah and while we enjoyed walking through it there is little to no information about it. There are a few standing historic markers near some of the graves but most of them are unreadable due...More
