Sheltered by the trees we wandered paths to family crypts and graves protected by beautiful ornamental ironwork. Have you ever noticed how peaceful cemeteries are? Siblings together forever and no bickering. The stones tell familial stories.

So interesting !!! The B&B we stayed the night before let us use a tape about the special people buried there. Such fascinating stories. Be sure to get a tape to listen to while touring the cemetery.

the cemetery full of history and the sections are well laid out. the office has maps for a self guided tour, or they have a guided tour at certain times. lots of confederate tombs with the confederate cross.

For a cemetery enthusiast there’s plenty to look at. The variety of monuments is staggering. A lot of history to be discovered. It’s a real maze of pathways. Get there in plenty of time to roam around....gates close at dusk.

When we arrived we picked up a map at the office. As we were driving around we noticed round signs with numbers. We soon realized that the numbered signs did not coincide with the numbers on the map. So we ended up ignoring the signs...More

We went to see the annual Turning Angel. The walking tour was excellent, then we went back the next day to see the same places in the daylight and listen to a CD about the tour. Plan to go back next year.

This cemetery is about the largest we have ever visited. Have been to Arlington VA which I think is much larger. We plan to visit this place again, as we were short on time when we visited this time. Being a history nuts we wanted...More
