Liberty Walk is a self guided walking tour through Uptown Charlotte. It is marked by informative historical plaques in the sidewalk. You can also get a brochure with more information from the visitors bureau in the convention center. I highly recommend the walking tour itself...More

Visitors should spent a hour here reading the bronze plaques and head stones. Walk thru the park and try to recall the possibilities of life back then versus the modern times seen in the skyline surrounding. The old Presbyterian church on the south side, Science...More

We visited here, frankly because there didn't seem to be any other historical sites in downtown Charlotte. The cemetery is relatively small, and the graves are not well marked or maintained. I suggest combing a quick look here with a walking tour along the adjacent...More

First off, you cannot compare this cemetery to any of the cemeteries around Boston or Philadelphia. I was looking for things to do while in Charlotte and followed the Liberty Trail and ended the trail at the Old Settlers Cemetery. I really like old historic...More

We found this while following the Liberty Walk trail, which doesn't seem to be an attraction included in TA yet. This is a small cemetery with mostly 1800s people buried in it. This is not as interesting as the Granary Burial ground in Boston, which...More

Prominent citizens are buried here who were important to our country becoming the USA. Visit here and honor their memory.

I was there in the morning and there seemed to be a lot of people walking their dogs. It was fascinating to walk through but I needed the zoom on my camera to see the inscriptions on the tombs. It's too bad that is the...More

I went on-line to look for a free walking tour and found one which included this cemetery. I enjoy walking through cemeteries. The history of this one is very nice, and it is an average cemetery. I would not go out of my way to...More
