  • I went to the cemetery for two reasons. One is that I love old cemeteries. Two is that I have an ancestor buried there. I spent hours looking around. It's a very peaceful place.
  • It’s a good place to stroll around... There is so much you can learn from the plaques of important people and what they did for savannah,ga... Legend says if you walk there you will be haunted for a whole week..πŸ€¨πŸ€―πŸ˜±β˜ οΈπŸ‘»πŸ˜ˆ
  • Many movers and shakers of American history are buried here. It's gorgeous and Segway of Savannah does a tour of the cemetery's history.
  • Nice place to visit. No bad vibes.
  • What a beautiful and serene piece of history to share with everyone. Lots of history to read about in this cemetary. Thank you Savannah for preserving this place and allowing public access.
