  • 100 year old gravestones amazing how the maintain the lands they defiantly care great historical land mark.
  • This cemetery was so cool, as was all of Savannah. The gravestones with the graffiti from the Soldiers that camped there was very neat.
  • If you love history. This has been a park since the 1800's. They stopped burying people here then.
  • Eerie and beautiful at the same time. This cemetery was the first official one in town, but the bodies of Savannah's dead are still interred even beneath the sidewalks outside its gates. Check out some of the history and the old tombstones.
  • 200+ year old gravestones. Many important and long forgotten people from American history buried here. Some so old all the writing is worn away.
