  • Yes! It is just a cemetery but a walk or a drive thru the cemetery would prove most interesting. History boards are set up to help the visitor find certain parts of the historical graves. Of course th...  more »
  • We did a 2 hour candlelight tour and it was absolutely fantastic! It's not a scary ghost hunting type of tour but historical in nature and the tour guide, Chris Haugh does a great job! I can't wait to...  more »

  • Most beautiful legitimate conference site i have ever seen anywhere. Hard to argue a cemetery is not a appropriate place of honor to rember local history. Even liberals can't deny the civil war happened, and here's where the people that fought rest.
  • This historic cemetery is a good place to visit. Francis Scott Key is buried here and many of the headstones are more than a hundred years old. The Civil War graves are lined up along the back fence and when I realized how many there were, it took my breath away. This place is a history lesson.
  • I visited this cemetery in April, 2017 with my brother and his wife. We were doing the "family history" tour-traveling from California. Soon after we arrived at Mount Olivet a kind man (Chris Haugh) asked if he could help us find a particular grave site. We were looking for Mc Clintock Young. Chris knew exactly who we were talking about and led us directly to the grave site. He had written an article on Mc Clintock and his family and told us stories we hadn't known about! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and Chris's knowledge and enthusiasm. He even went above and beyond by showing us several places around town where our relative lived and his old factory-that we would have never found on our own! I can't say enough great things about Chris Haugh and our incredible visit to the Mount Olivet Cemetery. We visited many wonderful places on our trip and this is my top pick! Be sure to go there on your trip!
