  • This is a fun place to stroll and try different restaurants and people watch. There seems to be a lot of activity and you feel like you are visiting all walks of life. We enjoyed it.  more »
  • It's right next to the public library. There is only one entrance and it closes at 4pm. It's a beautiful, small, old cemetery. If you are out for a stroll, stop by and take in the history of Mobile.  more »
  • Love the history but the walking tour is not good for Seniors but the cemetery is open during the day Joe Cain's grave is the very front and relative of George Washington are buried there,  more »

  • Amazing historic cemetery
  • My FAVORITE Mobile graveyard!!
  • Peaceful. historical cemetery entirely walled in by brick with many overhanging magnolia trees. A large number of deaths occured from Yellow Fever, or malaria. Well kept by caretaker and one of the safest places in Mobile's 'Downtown' area, and is directly behind the Mobile Public Library. Closed after dusk.
