  • I don't know how exciting a cemetery is supposed to be. I was a little surprised to have to pay admission, but it is private property and receives a lot of foot traffic, so I feel the price was nominal considering the upkeep probably required. It was something that I'm glad I did. The staff were knowledgeable about the cemetery and were able to answer a few questions I had about the property.
  • Pretty cool to get to see Ben's tomb. Throw a penny on it for good luck-it all goes to preserving the tombs in the graveyard. For $2.00 you can go into the whole graveyard itself, which is pretty cool too if you like graves.
  • The two women at the entrance were extremely knowledgeable. Be sure to ask questions like how they could bury 10+ people in one tomb. Really interesting stuff.
  • Tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable.
  • Awesome that you can see the grave from the sidewalk. You can pay a donation to walk through the cemetery.
