The cemetery is a peaceful place for a walk; stop to read the tombstones of those that helped build Savannah.

  • If you like ghost stories and historical cemeteries then this place is for you. One of many beautiful Savannah parks, but this one has even more history and stories than the others. A must visit when you are in Savannah.
  • The history behind this place is just phenomenal. It's on several of the ghost tours and it is worth taking a tour and going to see in the day time as well. There is no one to give you any information as you go in the gates so it's worth knowing a little about it and doing a little research before going there and if you take a ghost tour it will also tell you a lot of the history behind this cemetery as well.
  • Great history. Well kept.
  • Very educational old cemetery with a lot of young people that died. Peaceful. The city should put flowers there and maintain the foliage growing on graves. It was a good place to remember a lot of revolutionary war families and people who made savannah what it is today.
  • One of the top places to visit in Savannah. Best to go early in morning, better at dusk.
