The gravestones are so old it is quite amazing and worth a look. The trees with Spanish moss really create a spooky setting.

Cemetery tours not for everybody, but it was extremely interesting to see how old some of these graves were. Lots of historical markers throughout makes for easy self-guided exploration.

Lots of grave markers over a centuries span. The plaques are particularly well done with historic facts about the area and the people buried here. Worth stopping by for sure. Well maintained.

This is older than Bonaventure Cemetery. Not so ornate but just as spectacular! The gravestones that were knocked down by Sherman have been set up against the back wall! Beautiful!!!!
